Church, meet the vets;  vets, meet the church

Arriving at the American Legion building, I saw teenagers and adults working a big saw and cutting boards. Everyone nodded and smiled and when I asked who was in charge, they said Mickey. Just Mickey, no last name. I moved through the crowd of people and was finally pointed to the back door where I did find this elusive Mickey - Mickey Craven, that is. He told me the following story.

Mickey Craven from Ten Mile Creek Baptist Church and Mike Dyal from First Baptist Baxley had talked back in February. During the conversation, Mickey said, “Let’s do something for the American Legion.”
