What do a group of boys singing for their supper and Guido Gardens' Nights of Lights have in common? The answer is Bruce Purcell, owner of Quik Kut Distributors of Claxton, and a member of the Board of Trustees of Guido Evangelistic Association in Metter. Purcell has made arrangements for the young men who are residents of the Blount Boys Home of Lyons to sing for visitors to Nights of Lights on Saturday at 6:30 and 8 p.m. Purcell tells the story of how he came to first hear the beautiful singing of the young men.
