From Crank to the Cross: Scott County Drug Free Day


The second annual Scott County from Crank to the Cross event was held on Saturday, August 10 at the Waldron City Park.

Folks brought lawn chairs, and came ready to fellowship. The day also included testimonials, music and several guest speakers. They provided free sno-cones, cotton candy, and a waterslide for the kids.

“We pray that someone’s life will be changed,” said one organizer, Jeffery Manning. “I spent 23 years addicted to drugs and I know first hand how much that life really sucks! Now that I allowed Jesus in my life, He broke the chains of addiction for me and gave me a life worth living. I will spend the rest of my life trying to help my brothers and sisters see the love of Jesus, and that there is away out of addiction.”

Organizers extended a special thanks to the Waldron Pentecostal Church of God, Current Church and the local businesses who made this event possible.
