Alabama Gazette - The people's voice of reason

Summer time is here and boy is it hot!

 

We encourage you to stay indoors as much as possible and check on those loved ones to make sure that are ok with such high temperatures!

Fishing Rodeos

We would also like to thank everyone for the enormous response to our annual Kids Fishing Rodeo we had back on Saturday, June 18th. As I always say, it's up to an adult to set the example early in order to have a positive outcome which is why I focus on programs that cater to our youth. During the month of September, we will our Senior Fishing Rodeo. It will be held on Tuesday, September 13th from 6am-12noon for all seniors 55 years of age and older. This is a time for fun and fellowship with friends so please mark your calendar and continue to monitor our website www.MontgomerySheriff.com for updates.
