Pastor’s good works deserved more press
I sat down to read my paper, as I do every day, and what I see in the middle of the first section is a picture of Andre Brown playing his saxophone at what you called the NAACP fest.
I attended the banquet honoring Pastor Robert Lee for his great service to this community, not a festival. It was a beautiful affair attended by many officials and citizens of this community, as well as members of the local and state NAACP.
Pastor Lee has been my pastor for 32 years and has served this state and city for all of those years. Don’t get me wrong, Andre did a wonderful job, but the celebration was not about Andre.
I think it is a shame, when running across a highway or highlighting a band playing at Foster Park gets more recognition and press than the good works of a man — a man who has been a major fixture in the advancement of this city.
Thank you, NAACP committee, for a well put together recognition banquet honoring Pastor Robert A. Lee, and thank you, Pastor Lonnie Anderson, the speaker of the hour. Pastor Anderson, you did not leave a stone unturned.
You don’t wait on man. Only what you do for Christ will last.
