The Town of Falkville appreciates all of our citizens for doing their civic duty and filling out their census forms. The preliminary 2020 Census data is out, and Alabama will keep all seven of its Congressional seats! 

Special congratulations go out this week to Falkville High School students Wyatt Tomlin and Owen Teague, who finished fifth in the Major League Fishing U.S. Army High School Fishing Open Tournament on Lake Guntersville. This qualified them to fish the MLF World Finals at Lake Hartwell in South Carolina.  

National Day of Prayer Announced  

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation.  

It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. 

The Town of Falkville usually hosts a gathering in the morning and evening. This year the town asks you to join the observance at First Baptist in Hartselle.  

You can also pray right where you are to lift up our local, state and national leaders. 

God bless America!
