The Recorder gave away several prizes in the exhibit hall during the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina annual meeting as well as prizes at the Pastor’s Conference, the Minister’s Wives event and via social media outlets Twitter and Facebook. Among the prizes were a Yeti cooler and tumblers as well as handmade pens, Bibles and books.
Each year the BR gives away prizes at the booth and elsewhere to those who register. This year the bigger prizes included a Yeti cooler and tumblers as well as handmade ink pens in the BR’s trademark red.
