I would like to take this opportunity to thank two local businesses for their support of our church’s Oysterfest on Nov. 7.

Serenity Farms on Rt. 231 in Benedict donated a pig for the Oysterfest, enabling our church to hold an oysterfest/pig roast.

Since no one at our church was able to roast the pig, Randy of Randy’s Ribs on Rt. 5 in Hughesville volunteered to roast the pig.

We thank these two businesses for their support of our church’s twice a year fundraising efforts and recommend that people shop at these locally-owned businesses.
