The Guthrie family treated the city to a fantastic birthday party on Friday, July 31, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the founding of Guthrie's in 1965. Special guests included Governor Robert Bentley, Congressman Robert Aderholt, Mayor Ken Sunseri. Gospel music singer and recording artist Karen Wheaton preformed and literally brought the large crowd to their feet.
With a special commendation signed and presented by Governor Bentley, more acknowledgements of the occasion followed from Congressman Aderholt and Mayor Sunseri.
Winners of the $1,000 in the first drawing was Amanda Hood. Winner of the $1,000 at 9 p.m. drawing was Shannon Dunaway. Lola Hannah discovered the golden ticket in her meal and will receive free food for a year.
