Ryan works closely with local and federal programs to make sure that Shelby County residents have a plan in place for securing prompt assistance in their time of need. On this day, we will start compiling a list of seniors that would like to be contacted following a natural disaster, in case they would be unable to secure help themselves. This was an idea that was brought up at the Fairland Town Council meeting in Sept. by board member, Jeremy Creech. Ryan was present at this meeting and is happy to help us get this organized with the assistance of his office.
