Preparations for Nike Peach Jam were in full swing July 7 in North Augusta, with Riverview Park Activities Center being decorated and a truckload of peaches being processed for enjoyment by hundreds of top-level teen basketball players and the college and university coaches looking to recruit them. These scenes show volunteers from First Baptist Church of North Augusta taking care of the peeling, slicing and storage in preparation for the week's festivities. The fruit, in keeping with tradition, was donated by Titan Farms, of Ridge Spring, one of the country's biggest peach producers, to help ensure that all athletes and coaches get a chance to enjoy one of South Carolina's most popular products.
