Pastor CJ Duffey of ColorBlind Ministries has announced that the Second Annual “Fruit of the Spirit” Awards Banquet will be held on Saturday September 16, 2017 at 2pm at the SSHS Cafeteria. Tickets are $25 each which includes the opportunity to hear and to meet Tim Brown, Heisman Trophy Recipient and NFL Hall of Fame Inductee. In addition to Brown’s address and the awards presentations, there will be a banquet meal catered by Big Smith’s BBQ. Brown will also conduct a book signing at the event.

Also at the 2017 banquet, nine Fruit of the Spirit awards will be given to deserving local individuals and a special Fruit of the Spirit Award to a local media organization for 70 years of service to the community.
