'Bash in the Woods' set for Sept. 24

Friday, September 16, 2011

With help from local businesses and organizations, Family Worship Center will put on the second annual "Bash in the Woods," Saturday, Sept. 24.

Randy Neal, a member of the church for a year and a half, is the coordinator of the event.

"As a church we're servants of the community, and so I thought this year we would bring people in from different organizations throughout our city that are part of community service," Neal said.

Local organizations taking part in the event so far include, Clay County Sheriffs Department, The Posey Volunteer Fire Department, Trans Care, Life Line, St. Vincent's Hospital, National Guard, YMCA, S.O.S., Crisis Pregnancy Center, House of Hope and The Public Library.

Neal said one goal for people who attend the event is to meet the men and women who serve the community.

"They're going to bring out tables and set up, so people can come and see," Neal said. "Because most of us, we don't think about the people we need until you need them and then it's, 'I'll dial 911 when I need them.'"

Neal continued, "We need to be able to come out and meet the people that are serving us each and every day. Even though you might not need them at that particular moment, there comes a time when you're probably going to need somebody out of one of these organizations to help you."

According to Neal, the event will also feature free games, food and hay rides.

"There's no money involved." Neal said. "This is all free; there's no charge for anything, it's been absorbed by several people in the church."

Local businesses have also donated to the event. Pepsi and McDonalds are two businesses Neal mentioned.

Last year, Neal said approximately 150 people attended the first "Bash in the Woods" and he hopes it goes even better this year.

"This year we're hoping to have it in the woods, (because) last year it rained (and) we ended up having to move it in to the church," he said.

Neal said he hopes he can help bring the community together for a fun day.

"This is a good chance for people to come out ... for a good day of food, fun and fellowship," Neal said.
