  • Thanks for help during storm clean up

    Words can’t express our thanks and appreciation for our great neighbors, the Rogers’ family, the Worford family for helping us open our road. We all worked together to clear eight to 10 downed trees on Flatrock and Mt. Glead Roads. A big thanks to the Shelby Rural Electric men, who worked endlessly to get our light lines back up and running. Neighbors and friends like Shelby Rural Electric, working together, in the time of need gives us all hope for the future.
