• Hundreds attend wild game supper and expo
By Wayne Parham

Wild game dishes, a business expo, door prize drawings, and ministry all combined Saturday afternoon as First Baptist Church hosted a Wild Game Supper and Outdoors Expo.
The event was open to the public, free, and drew a large crowd.
Matt Ward, FBC associate pastor, said more than 850 people attended the event.
“We had many more people than we had expected and we were very glad that was the case,” said Ward. “Everybody still had food and a place to sit. God was taking care of us.”
The afternoon opened with an expo — which was not just limited to outdoors-related businesses. Several health care businesses also attended and there was even a cosmetics table.
Following the expo, guests dined on an assortment of wild game as friends and families enjoyed the supper in the church gymnasium.
Professional fisherman Royce Railey, who at one point was a youth minister at the church, told outdoors stories and shared fishing tips and advice. He engaged the crowd with demonstrations of casting, flipping and pitching a hook-less practice lure.
