The dazzling American flag-themed Ford F-150 SVT Raptor “Patriot” on display at the Dixie Deer Classic was worthy of including in a Barefoot family selfie. Logan Barefoot takes the picture with mother Sherry and father Johnny, all of Efland. They were among more than 20,500 visitors at the 36th annual outdoors exhibition March 4-6 at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh. At left, Truckin 4 Troops volunteer Scott Mallary of Annapolis, Md., explains to another family how the truck will be raffled by FireFighters Assisting Armed Forces Families, or FFAAFF, to fund the purchase of a former hunting camp in eastern North Carolina as a retreat for wounded veterans. The retreat will be called Camp4Heroes. Learn more at www.ffaaff.org.
