Special salutes to the City of Saint Jude, celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, and Magic Moments, celebrating its 25th.

Both help children. 

The Father Purcell exceptional children's center here helps children with birth defects or who suffer mental or physical damage from childhood injury.

Father Harold Purcell pioneered nondiscriminatory health, education and social services in this region.               

Magic moments grants wishes to Alabama children with life-threatening or life-altering medical conditions.

More than 3,800 magic moments have been granted in all 67 counties of Alabama.

We hope both continue to make a positive difference in our community for years to come.
