On Thursday, Dec. 20 Turner County Sheriff Byron Nogelmeier played Santa when he delivered gifts of money on behalf of the Turner County Charity Youth Pheasant Hunt and Stars of the Grand Ole Opry. The gifts of money were disbursed among several charity organizations. “This year we gave away $6400.00 to several local charities and The American Cancer Society. We felt it was important to help fund some of our local charities right here in Turner County this year. The Turner County Charity Youth Hunt and Stars of the Grand Ole Opry want to thank everyone who came and supported the event. We hope to see you all again next year and bring a friend so we can continue our work by helping and serving others,” said Sheriff Byron Nogelmeier.
