This was our second Back to Basics event. Brandon Foster, a member who works at the Charles County Sheriff Department, taught a valuable class in self-defense techniques. He started with a time of devotion and then delivered a riveting presentation. Techniques were demonstrated with Brandon’s son LaShaad Hopewell, so no JEWEL was injured in the making of this event.

LaShaad (after a brief recovery) also demonstrated the survival technique of drying meat—complete with delicious samples.
