McCords Crossroads Homemakers Club was awarded a grant by the Community Foundation of Northeast Alabama.  They have planned, designed and are now ready to build an open and sacred green space that will serve their community and surrounding areas.  The CFNEA grant is to facilitate a deeper understanding of the legacy of Susie Parker Stringfellow and the development of a sacred space that can be used as a place of reflection, healing, unity and community well being.

This is a first for Cherokee County and we are very proud of the McCord’s Crossroads Homemakers Club !!!
