Members of the Statesboro First Baptist Church congregation, along with local dentists, doctors and medical personnel, met needs of visiting fair workers from Amusements of America last week. More than 200 Amusement workers were treated Tuesday to a lunch of steak, baked potato, salad and homemade dessert, provided and prepared by church members. The workers chose new pillows or blankets, also donated by church members, while waiting to be served.
