For a number of years, a Shelbyville couple – who choose to remain anonymous – has made annual donations during the Christmas season to Shelbyville and Bedford County law enforcement, fire protection and animal welfare agencies. This year’s checks were distributed on Monday, Dec. 20, at the historic Bedford County Courthouse.
Receiving agencies included Bedford County Sheriff’s Office, Shelbyville Police Department, Bedford County Fire Department, Shelbyville Fire Department, Bedford County Animal Control, Middle Tennessee Spay & Neuter Clinic, and Shelbyville-Bedford County Humane Association.
