Several of little fairies from the Sheffield community were found touring the Fairy Walk in downtown Mocksville on Saturday.  This is a fun event for the children and their parents. Those spotted were Kaiden Hobson, Lillian Keaton, Brinley Vaughn and Jayden Wolfe.

Anyone interested in being a firefighter and serving the community, see Chief Gary Allen of the Sheffield-Calahaln VFD by coming by the department or calling 336-492-5791.

New Union thanks everyone that came to Hotdog Saturday. It was so good to see so many people enjoying good food and fellowship. Some came early and stayed until the end.  The weather was perfect after being rained out two months in a row.  Again, we appreciate everyone’s support and look forward to seeing you on July 22.
