Once again, Representative Huggins and I are pleased to host the event we decided years ago would serve as the “unofficial kickoff to the Okra Strut”.
We hope our sponsors and community will again fill the halls of another local church (socially distanced, of course) as we start our morning off with prayer, song, and powerful message.
If you’ve never been before, we hope you’ll RSVP this year.
