Tribute to religion, Claxton Prays service held at Wildlife Club

A Centennial tribute to the history of religion in Evans County was held in conjunction with Evans County’s annual community Thanksgiving service, “Claxton Prays” on Saturday, November 22, at the Evans County Wildlife Club. Event organizers say the service brought out a large crowd.
“It went really well,” said Greg Hendrix, chairman of the Centennial religion committee. “The speakers were great. The groups (singing and drama) were excellent. It was just a good event all around.” The program was scheduled for 90 minutes but ran almost two hours as speakers reflected on the importance of religion in Evans County.
“I thought we had a good line up of people. We put a lot of thought into each speaker and the music. All of them did really well,” said Bruce Purcell, Claxton Prays organizer.
More than a dozen local churches set up historical exhibits at the Wildlife Club and attendees perused them before and after the program. “We had more show up than reported was coming. We had to find extra tables (for the exhibits) … a good problem to have,” Hendrix said.
