On Saturday, May 31, the United Methodist Church of Carrabelle and “God’s Ministry for the Needy” held a Market Days fundraiser including a rummage sale, bake sale, hot dogs and live music.
Seen here, Rev. Aaron Batey, far left, strummed guitar and sang accompanied by Jim Short and Mike Nepote on drums. “The turnout was a little less than I had expected based on other months, but we raised twice what you expected from the turnout,” said Batey. “I want to thank everybody in the community.”
Batey said money raised during Market Days goes to help needy families, through a committee that examines situations on a case-by-case basis. During May, “God’s Ministry for the Needy” bought groceries for a single parent family left homeless by a fire.
