The City of Guntersville and the Lake Guntersville Chamber of Commerce regret to announce the cancellation of the annual 4th of July Fireworks over Lake Guntersville. There is an expectation of a larger than normal crowd due to July 4th falling on a Saturday. With current CDC guidelines for social distancing for a crowd this size, there are concerns regarding the safety of citizens and visitors in attendance; first responders patrolling the parks; and city personnel cleaning up during and after the event. Additionally, the agreement required by the State Fire Marshal’s Office, “to maintain a consistent six-foot distance between persons from different households,” cannot be signed in good faith. The COVID-19 public health crisis has been an adjustment for everyone and this decision to cancel was not made without much thoughtfulness, discussion, and consideration over the last few months with City department heads and local and state leadership. We hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July this year and we are already planning for July 4, 2021!

The Guntersville Senior Center will be going thru some changes in meal service. First of all our homebound clients that already have a client ID# will no longer receive a hot meal from the Senior Center on Monday-Friday of each week. We will be bringing our homebound shelf stable meals. These meals could include soups, peanut butter, crackers, cereal bars, canned fruit, fruit juice, raisins ,simple but nutritious meals that can be prepared at home by our homebound clients. We hope to deliver these to your homes every 14 days until we are able to resume our hot meal delivery. Our clients are to eat one of these meals each day to supplement their diets. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause our clients. We are all trying to work together to insure that our homebound clients are taken care of. We will no longer be serving hot meals curbside at our senior center to our congregate clients. We will be provided a small number of shelf stable meals for our most vulnerable clients If you have any questions about these meals, you may call Reita @ 256-505-3000. Our prayer for each citizen in this community is to stay healthy.
