The Youth and Kid’s at New Union enjoyed an evening of carving their jack-o-lantern after a meal of pizza on Wednesday. The Sheffield Calahaln VFD was the gracious host to this fun-filled event.  It was a grand time for children and adults.  Youth and Kid’s Night is held each Wednesday from 6:30-7:30. Sunday School is each week at 9 a.m. and worship at 10.

If interested in becoming a firefighter, Chief Gary Allen of the Sheffield-Calahaln VFD invites you to come by the department or call 336-492-5791.

I’m going to use this column to brag on someone that I’m very proud of.  Wade H. Leonard Jr. was one of approximately 100 attorneys honored Oct. 20 at a 50-Year Lawyer Luncheon in Raleigh celebrating the class of 1972. All received a 50-year pin and a certificate recognizing them for their many years of dedication to the legal profession. I’m sure all these men and women can share some stories of the changes in law that our country has experienced these 50 plus years. Thanks, Mr. Leonard, for 50 years, and here’s hoping you’re practicing many more.

The Sheffield-Calahaln VFD’s 20 Gun Bingo will be Nov. 12 at 5 p.m., including a meal, 20 games of bingo, side raffles and door prizes.  The department is at 435 Dyson Road.  Tickets are $50 each and can be obtained from any firefighter.  For more information, please contact Gary at 336-345-3672 or Mitch at 336-909-1422.  Hope you can come out for the fun and a way to support the fire department.

A lot of folks enjoyed some great chicken stew at Ijames Baptist Church on Saturday.  And the hayride was a big hit with the adults and children. It was a fun time for all ages.  Thanks to Wendi White for sharing the photos.
