SCARC in the Park

It was a beautiful day for a Thanksgiving Feast at Dade Battlefield State Park, Bushnell, on Tuesday, November 24th. Participants and staff of SCARC, Inc. had a lot to be thankful for as the Cross Connection Church served a complete Thanksgiving dinner, with all the fixin’s.

SCARC participants and staff relaxed while being served like royalty. After the feast, Southern Gospel music was enjoyed as the Fruit Pickers Band of Bushnell First Baptist Church, led by Ricky Taylor, performed. SCARC, Inc. would like to thank Pastor Clarence Crane, Pastor Doug Watkins and Dade Battlefield State Park Manager Bill Gruber, for a fun day!
