The Fultondale Fire Department is raising funds and providing complimentary family portraits to households in the city who donate. C & C Enterprises will be going door-to-door to collect donations and will be taking pictures. If you have any complaints or questions call me at 841-4481.

• The Fultondale wrestling team is selling Boston butts for $25 now through May 20. They can be picked up May 21-23. They are raising money for summer wrestling at the high school. If you want to have someone else cook your Memorial Day barbecue, give Billy Hughes a call at 849-6465 or 283-5380.

• I would like to personally thank everyone that participated or donated to our Fultondale senior citizen’s golf tournament. Without your support, this would not be a success. The funds go directly to the senior’s citizens for their needs at the center.

• Remember the car show/cruise-in will be May 23 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Target parking lot. Everyone is invited and it is free. Come enjoy a fun-filled afternoon. You can eat at your favorite restaurant, shop and check out the car show.

• I would like to congratulate the 2009 graduating class at Fultondale High School. Graduation is scheduled for May 28 at 2:30 p.m. at Gateway Baptist Church. I wish the very best to all of you. Have a wonderful, safe and prosperous future.

• A special happy belated birthday wish goes to Mrs. Nell Gray, who turned 83 on May 11. We hope she had a wonderful birthday. Her loving husband, Mr. Rubin Gray, sent this birthday wish to her. We hope she has many, many more.

• A special happy belated birthday wish goes to: our city clerk, Jane Hicks, on May 3; Suzanne Burdette of the library on May 6; and to police officer Bill Woods on May May 8. All do a great job for the city and we hope they had great birthdays.

• A happy birthday wish goes to: Debra Webb of the library on May 13; police chief Byron Pigg on May 17; and to Angela Jones of the Gas Department on May 18. We hope they have wonderful birthdays.

Remember if you have news, anniversaries, birthdays or reunions, let me know.
