Lakeside Church at Lake Oconee, located at 5800 Lake Oconee Parkway in Greensboro, Georgia, is hosting a community-wide Wild Game Supper on Friday, March 8, and Saturday, March 9, from 6 to 8 p.m. 

Doors will open at 5 p.m. both nights in order for attendees to enjoy the world-record trophy exhibit. 

The wild game supper with all of the sides, beverages, and desserts will be served at 6 p.m., and guests will enjoy special guest speaker Col. (Ret.) Paul Longgrear, Vietnam veteran, and one of only thirteen Green Berets to survive the battle of Lang Vei in Vietnam. 

Tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased at the church or online at

The world-record trophy exhibit includes trophy mounts from all over the country, including world-record whitetail deer such as the famous “Hole in the Horn” and the Missouri Monarch, as well as a world-record elk, and a world-record fish exhibit. Lakeside Church is honored to display this exhibit for the Greensboro area and surrounding communities. 

Local outdoorsmen are invited to display their own mounts for this event. Anyone interested in displaying their mounts should contact the church for more information.

Col. (Ret.) Paul Longgrear will be special guest speaker for this event. Longgrear is a Vietnam veteran, one of only 13 Green Berets to survive the Battle of Lang Vei in Vietnam. He is the subject of a four-part documentary, “The Man Left Behind,” which documents how Longgrear came to know God in the most unlikely place — on the battlefield in Vietnam. 

Longgrear has 26 years of federal service and has received several prestigious awards such as three Purple Hearts, the Silver Star, Bronze Stars for Valor, two achievement awards from the German Army, and two Vietnamese government awards for valor.

Lakeside Church at Lake Oconee strives to be the bridge that gets people from where they are to where God wants them to be.
