Fish fry benefit to help county families


Moorefield Market, located at 805 Highway 129 in Moorefield, will be hosting its annual fish fry to benefit “Santa’s Kids” tomorrow (Friday) evening.

The event will take place from 4- 8 p.m., with proceeds going help underprivileged families in Switzerland County.

Along with door prizes, the winners of the annual raffle that includes a nearly new Bermuda “Tandem-Torker” bicycle built-for-two; and a vintage Italian-made Cinzia Elite Folding Bicycle will be announced.

Other raffle items are also available.

A worthy project brought to life by market owners Marla Swynenberg and Bill Jones, the proceeds from this and other projects they’ve held throughout the year, including a hog roast and poker run, helps bring Christmas to nearly 10 individuals and families in the county. Bill Jones also raises money by posing as Santa at area functions, with more donations enabling them to help more families.
