Time running out to go on summer vacation with kids

If you have school-age children and haven’t gone on vacation yet, time is running out. There is still time since school doesn’t start until Aug. 15. Also don’t forget the tax-free special the first weekend in August. This is a great opportunity to take advantage of the tax break.

A cheery hello goes out this week to our nursing home residents. If you would like to drop them a card, the addresses of our two local nursing homes are as follows: Falkville Nursing Home, P.O. Box 409, Falkville, AL 35622 and Summerford Nursing Home, 4087 Highway 31, SW, Falkville, AL 35622.
