“Hey we got us to a safe place, we landed here. Safe,” said Jordan Williams. “You know, pilot Williams thanks you very much for you business.”

After taking some pictures for the conference all those in attendance got the chance to eat at the clambake which is an AAC tradition.

“I got about three or four pieces of chicken, got some steak, got a whole lot of cornbread too,” said Jimmy Williams. “Got to have the cornbread, if they got it up there you got to eat it and it’s good.”
