According to Panco Pastor Jerry Rice the ride was dedicated to one of their biggest supporters, “Bible Boy” Darrel Glenn Hudson who recently lost a battle with cancer.
“We are doing this for the kids in our community, if we don’t we will lose another generation.” said Rice. “Drug dealers don’t have a chance with us, they don’t have a chance, and we are going to take their market.”
Rice is working with local officials and foundations to secure grants to build even more and bigger things for the kids to do. They are currently in the process of adding $100,000 of playground equipment. He hopes to raise enough money to build a bowling alley and small movie theater.
