Cry Out America 9-11 rally draws large crowd to downtown Clarksville

 

More than 100 Christians from across Montgomery County gathered at the old Montgomery County Courthouse Thursday at noon for a revival-style interdenominational Cry Out America ceremony linked to 9-11 memorials.

The hour-long ceremony was coordinated by Beverly Blackard of Little Hope Baptist Church, who became involved with the nationwide program while recently attending the Tennessee Baptist Convention, when participants were told of the need for a coordinator for Montgomery County.
