Sheldon greets fans at Super Drugs Pharmacy

HORN LAKE, Miss. – Mississippi RiverKings mascot Sheldon the Turtle greeted loyal fans and customers at two Super Drugs Pharmacy locations in May. 

Sheldon interacted with the customers and gave out RiverKings bookmarks, Sheldon tattoos and other goodies to fans who came out to either the Horn Lake or Hernando Super Drugs Pharmacy locations.

"We have had customers for 20 years who have followed us from 1992 until now," said Eddie O'Bannon, owner of Super Drugs Pharmacy. "We wanted to give back to our customers and the community as Super Drugs Pharmacy is for the community. Having Sheldon at our stores was one of the ways we were able to give back to the community."

In addition to meeting with Sheldon, customers could get free glucose and blood pressure screenings, enjoy free hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks and kids could jump in a bounce house.

"We give back as much as we can for community development," O'Bannon said. "It's my way of saying thank you to all of our customers and supporters."
