Pastor C.J. Duffey of Colorblind Ministries invites the community to be present as nominees are honored during the Fruit of the Spirit Awards and Banquet set for Saturday September 14, 2019 at 3pm in the Sulphur Springs High School Cafeteria, 1200 Connally Street. Nominees in nine categories of public service and ministry in Hopkins County were compiled during 2019, and recipients were selected for recognition. The event will also include a banquet meal by Duffey’s BBQ, musical entertainment by Charles and Kenya Chaffer and a motivational program by featured speaker Everson Walls, a Dallas Cowboy 4-time Pro-Bowl player and Hall of Fame nominee. Walls will also hold a book signing for ‘A Gift for Ron” recounting memorable experiences on and off the field. It was written for his friend and teammate, the late Ron Springs, to whom he had donated a kidney. Attendees can also meet Walls, one of the most prolific and decorated defensive backs to ever play the game of football, as well as get autographs and snap a photo with him free of charge.
Tickets to the awards banquet are $25 advance and $30 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased at Good News Christian Bookstore, at Jay Hodge Chevrolet and at Legacy Choice Hospice in Sulphur Springs. Or you can phone for tickets to be delivered this week, by calling 903-335-4764. Proceeds will go to benefit the Lord’s Work Food Pantry to help continue feeding the citizens of Hopkins County.
