Men's Wild Game Banquet report

The Eight Annual Men's Wild Game Banquet was held on 10/28 in the Lowcountry Outdoors stronghold of Varnville! The old Embler Door Plant opened its doors to a horde of sportsman who came to dine on fried gator tail, venison, turkey, fried frog legs, wild hog, shrimp and quail - and it was ALL for FREE. Donations from local outdoorsmen account for the bounty of food that feeds the gathered crowd of 200 menfolk. Caterers are brought in to cook and serve the food and other community partners come together for this once-a-year special occasion. The "Wildife Supper for men with a Spiritual Flavor" including inspirational speaker Dr. Tommy Young, a graduate from nearby Wade Hampton High School who has had an exceptional career in the field of surgical medicine. A prayer service was held after the meal and a 'call' was made to those outdoor men folk who might want to rededicate their lives to the Lord. The list of sponsors and donors are too many to name, but two organizers to recognize are Wade Freeman and Wise Batten.
