Hello everyone. Well it looks like fall is coming. Last few days have been wonderful. And the rains have been nice too. We really needed them.
Congratulations to Greg Crump who was elected to be on the Pell City Board of Education in the run-off election last week. I am sure that Greg will do a great job.
Congratulations to the Pell City High School Football Team. They beat Springville on Friday night. It is good to have our team healthy.
Many churches are planning their annual Fall Festivals, Trunk or Treats, etc. And there will be plenty of chances for the kiddos to get lots of candy. Will post as soon as I know the dates and times. But for now, the Cropwell Baptist Church invites you to join them for their annual Trunk or Treat event on Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 6 p.m. “This is always a fun time, where we can fellowship together and show the love of Jesus to our community.” Victory Christian will have a drive-thru Trunk or Treat on Saturday, Oct. 31 from 5-7 p.m. New Hope Baptist will have its Trunk or Treat on Wednesday, Oct. 28 from 6-8 p.m.
