I’m came home from the hospital the afternoon of Sept. 2, but was discharged with continued oxygen. Please everyone be careful. Covid is not something to take lightly. I thought I had done everything correctly, had my vaccine, continued to wear my mask when in a crowd, kept everything at work and home sanitized, but it wasn’t enough. Hopefully I’ll be back to my “horrible” self real soon.

Lots of birthdays have been missed:  Pamela Branham on Sept. 1; Craig Myers, Kat Routh and Lester Edwards on Sept. 2; Josephine Anderson on Sept. 6; Bill Reeves and Harper Dyson on Sept. 7; Jennifer Moody on Sept. 11; Janice Jordan and Heather Dyson on Sept. 12; Justin Price on Sept. 13; and Stephanie Blackwelder on Sept. 14. I do want to wish those with anniversaries much happiness:  Rodger and Melba Feimster on Sept. 4; Wade and Linda Leonard on Sept. 6; Rowan and Judy Fay on Sept. 8; David and Tammy Beck on Sept. 9; Calvin and Mary Bell Prevette and Jack and Mildred Keller on Sept. 10; and Stephen and Tracy Barnes on Sept. 13.

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

There will be a Memorial Service at the fire department on Sunday, Sept. 19 at 3 p.m. We look forward to sharing this special day with the community and the families of firefighters remembered on this day and always.

A couple photos was sent to me by Phoebe Smith. It has some family members that will be of much interest to those who take the weekly paper. I’m sure I was not able to get all names listed, but if you know of others or any corrections, please do not hesitate to contact me or Phoebe with information.
