UNION — A bazaar that featured a fish fry, bake sale, and an indoor yard sale helped move a local church closer to its goal of building a community park.

Corinth Baptist Church held its Park Festival Bazaar on Saturday, Feb. 11 with both indoor and outdoor offerings. Indoors, there were clothes, shoes, jewelry, household goods, and furniture for sale. Outside there was a fish fry with church members frying fish and making grits to serve customers plates full of both for breakfast and lunch. There was also a bake sale and free coffee and cider were served.

The Rev. J. Archie Calhoun said Monday that the event was a success, with the fish fry selling out completely and 90 percent of the merchandise for sale in the indoor portion of the bazaar being sold.

Calhoun said that the bazaar was part of the church’s ongoing efforts to raise funds to build the Corinth Baptist Church Park which will be located at the corner of North Pinckney and Academy streets and the Corinth Baptist Church Fellowship Hall located at 302 North Herndon Street.

The park will include green space and places for people who are out walking to sit. It will also include a small playground with swings for children.

Calhoun said the park is expected to cost $70,000 to build and that events like the bazaar are part of the efforts of Corinth Baptist to raise that amount. He said that as of Monday the church has raised $20,000 of the needed amount and that fundraising efforts will continue.
