Caroline church had Christmas in April

Wright’s Chapel United Methodist Church in Lady smith gathered 12 tons of food and raised $4,000 to help fill food pantries in Caroline County.

"Christmas in April" was meant to raise hunger aware ness and to support St. Mary’s Catholic and Reho beth United Methodist churches, which both run food pantries.

They held a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings and accepted food and monetary dona tions.

Pastor Charles Tillapaugh said it was a huge success.

"We didn’t solve the world hunger issue, but we did make a dent in our commu nity," he said.
