The third week in August (18-23) is known as “Community Week” for the folks at Banner Chapel Church in Benson. It all starts on Sunday with free back-to-school haircuts and sport/school physicals. This was the second year offering free haircuts and 23 students came to get one! This was also the first year offering free physicals and we administered them to 18 students! One dad and son walked 1.5 miles to the church to get a physical.
Then on Wednesday, the whole staff at South Johnston High School was treated to a “homecoming” style lunch at the church. This meal and day has become the most anticipated event for the teachers returning to school! Cash door prizes were given out and each staff person got a special gift.
