Quail, rabbit, fish, chicken, pork, possum, chitterlings - you name it, they had it - a wild feast with all the trimmings. And deli- cious desserts to finish it off. Celebrated on Saturday, March 13, this annual event has become one of the most enjoyable and talked about happenings at Antioch Baptist Church in Hogansville. This year's atten- dance was the best yet. The men have already begun to talk and make, plans for next year - check their hunting plans and you may guess what wild treat they will be cooking next time. This year's feast was done in memory of the late Myron Williams, local taxidermist and member of Antioch Baptist Church. Myron thoroughly enjoyed hunting and fishing. His love for the outdoors and nature showed in every mount that he did. He was a perfectionist - he wanted his work to be perfect and he put many long hours into mak- ing each animal look as realistic as possible. People came from far and near to get Myron to do their taxidermy work - and each per- son left with a trophy in his hands after Myron's f'~ touch. Thanks are eXtehded to David Beall.and Rev. Wesley Boatman for m&king the tribute so special: Numerous pictures of Myron and his clients, along with their kill, were displayed, as well as a vari- ety of mounts he completed - deer heads, ducks, squirrels, and even an armadillo. Memories of great times flood- ed back as friends, relatives, cus- tomers and fellow church mem- bers gathered to honor him and enjoy this special time. Some 80- 90 guests were present.
