Fair Trade Craft Show


MT. VERNON — — Jane McCorkle, president of the Mary Circle at the First United Methodist Church said the first Fair Trade Craft show was a success. “I can see us doing this another year,” she said. The craft show sold items made by people in foreign countries as a way to support themselves. The church received 10 percent of the sales, which will be donated to the Lifeboat Alliance New Family Life Shelter and Angels on Assignment.
