As someone who grew up in Altha, I wanted to put all the information for Calhoun County residents into one Central location. Photos, companies to contact for insurance claim repairs, FEMA information, and open places and where to find supplies.
I’ve been depending on Facebook to get all of the updates on my home-county, but if you manage to get internet access, you can’t spend all that time surfing and trying to find up to date info that you need. So, here it all is, organized and as up to date as a country girl living in Orlando can give you.
This is not a COMPLETE list and I’ll update the time anytime I make a change or add to…so you know how up to date the info is. I’m one person so…bare with me, I’m going to do the best I can.
