While trying to break a world record Saturday morning, 75 local volunteers did something much better than securing their place in Guiness. Outside of the Oakwood Sam’s Club, volunteers formed an "assembly line" of sorts to make as many sandwiches as they could in one hour for Action Ministry’s Smart Lunch Smart Kid summer feeding program. After 23 minutes and 19 seconds, the volunteers had slapped together 3,546 ham and cheese sandwiches for hungry kids in Hall County.
