Local church holds garage sale, raises funds for youth

The fellowship hall of Bethany Baptist Church was filled with forgotten treasures and other odds and ends Saturday as they hosted a garage sale. 

It was to raise funds for Dusty Jones. 

Jones, who graduated from Bleckley County High School this year, will be taking his first ever mission trip to the Ukrane in July. 

He'll be recreation director on the 11-day trip that begins July 10.  Also going on the trip will be Rev. Jim Ward of Lakeview Baptist Church and Rev. Mark Shaw of Limestone Baptist Church.
