Patriot Day Serv. draws large crowd

More than a hundred Evans County residents and Rotarians joined together last Thursday afternoon, Sept. 11, to commemorate Patriot Day, remembering those who died during the 9/11 terrorist attacks and honoring men and women still in active duty to our country.
The Claxton-Evans County Chamber of Commerce presented the 13th annual Evans County Patriot Day Service of Remembrance in partnership with the Claxton Rotary Club at the Veterans Community Center. “We’re having a Rotary Day where we invite the community in as part of a Rotary meeting in honor of Patriot Day,” said Dr. Joy Collins, Claxton Rotary Club president. Mrs. Roger’s Restaurant catered the buffet style meal for the program.
Philip Williams, The Claxton Bank president and CEO, lead the crowd in singing God Bless America prior to Dr. Matt Brady’s address. Brady serves as the pastor of Eastside Baptist Church in Claxton.
Brady inspired and challenged the audience to make “In God We Trust” more than a motto on U.S. coinage, but rather an integral part of their lives.
