Welcome to Sheldon, where Families Come First!  Sheldon,a city I'm proud to call home! It’s my goal to share in the excitement of great things happening here in Sheldon; taking pride in our city, making a difference in any way that we personally can! Whether it is picking up that small piece of trash along your walk, volunteering at a community/church/school event, participating in celebrations, speaking positive about our great city, shopping locally; every little deed adds up and pulls our community together! When we pull together we are unified! When we are unified, we are family!! What is “family”? Family is a group of people unified by certain convictions or a common affiliation.

Come join our family, our City of Sheldon!
