June 17, 2019 - In celebration of Hunger Awareness Month, Shelby County Outreach Ministries will have a Canned Food Drive from June 10th thru June 14th. Donations may be dropped off at Shelby County Outreach Ministries between 9-2 M-F.
Statistics say that 21.3% of people in Shelby County live in a food insecure home. This means that we have people in our community that are hungry and not sure where their next meal will come from.
On June 21st and 22nd donations can be made at Brookshire Brothers and Wal-Mart. Help us “Stomp Out Hunger” by donating canned foods, non-perishable food items, or monetary donations! Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
Come by the tables and donated any canned goods or non-perishable items for Hunger Awareness Week! Every canned item will help "Stomp Out Hunger" here in Shelby County! Thank you for your support and God Bless!

June 14, 2019 - In the United States, flag day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on June 14, 1777.
The United States Army also celebrates their 244th birthday today having been established June 14, 1775.
In 1916, president Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as flag day. In August 1946, national Flag Day was established by an act of congress but is not an official federal holiday.
Today as we have in past years, new flags will be hoisted by Post Commander Gene Hutto.
