Chris Edgar and the Fort Deposit Arts Council have opened Calico Fort to Hurricane Michael evacuees campers with free electricity and water.

Edgar and the Arts Council fed the campers lunch today with barbecue, potato salad, potato chips, brownies, water and tea with the food coming from Front Porch Barbecue and Priester’s Pecans in Fort Deposit.
