BARNESVILLE — A spaghetti dinner and country store fundraiser to benefit a Barnesville Elementary School student who is planning to visit Africa in August with a Shekinah Christian Fellowship mission, is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 9 at the church, 145 W. Main Street in Barnesville.
Jasmine, 9, has dreamed for the last three years of visiting Kenya after seeing a display regarding a mission to build an orphanage and a water well in the African country. The mission in August will include construction of a playground at the orphanage to establish a school.
The country store (silent auction) will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. when the winning tickets will be drawn. Cost is $10 for a sheet of 25 tickets, and the winner is not required to be present at the time of the drawing. Organizers currently have more than 30 items for the store.
The spaghetti dinner from 12 to 2 p.m. will be dine-in or carry-out by donation.
Contact Linda Dickerson, 740-359-8786, to donate to the country store or for additional information.
