We have discussed ways they can give back to Cullman, which demonstrates they have a heart for showing support for the community that supports them.”
“We are excited that they were able to turn an empty building into something, that appears from comments I read, that many people in the community are looking forward to visiting,” said Eller. “We are seeing a lot of retail activity in the community.
