I want to thank all the staff at Novant Forsyth Medical Center for the excellent care I’m receiving.  I never knew I could ever be this sick, but Covid and pneumonia in both lungs sent me for a loop. Thanks for all the prayers and good wishes. By the time you read this,  I hope I’m back at work doing what I love the most.  I’m fortunate to work for the best attorney in Mocksville, Wade Leonard. I’m so thankful that he and Linda tested negative.  Please take this pandemic seriously. I had my Pfizer vaccine but it doesn’t 100 percent protect you. Please stay safe.

Sheffield-Calahaln VFD meetings are held each Monday night at the station at 7.  If interested in becoming a firefighter or want to know more, Chief Gary Allen and other members welcome you any Monday night to answer questions.
