ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

Hundreds of Pine Belt residents skipped shopping for a holiday turkey this year and instead, picked up a free one at an Ellisville church Saturday. 

It was all part of an annual turkey giveaway, hosted by State Senator Chris McDaniel and volunteers at West Ellisville Baptist Church. 

It was the 12th year for the event. 

All you had to do was drive up, say Merry Christmas and get a free bird from Santa or some of his elves. 

About 40 volunteers handed out 300 turkeys.

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
