SYLVANIA - Emotions were charged last week during a town meeting called to discuss the uncertain future facing AMI Kids Savannah River Program in Screven County and to garner community support in an effort to save the program.

There were two bids in place, he said, and the D.J.J., through the Department of Administrative Services, recently issued the notice of intent to award to another vendor.
