Artisan exhibition at Denton FarmPark to benefit a frail aging population

Posted at 12:00 a.m. on Friday, September 16, 2022

DENTON – North Carolina’s First Baptist Aging Ministry (NCBAM) Creator Field will take place September 23-24 at Denton Farm Park. Proceeds from this organized craft event will benefit the elderly.

State artisans, food vendors, musicians and a country train will be on display. Vendors will display pottery, woodwork, jewelry, candles, soaps and plants. Cornbread Revival (bluegrass), By His Blood quartet and Debbie Lewis, Ms. Senior North Carolina for 2016, will provide live music.

Doors open Friday, September 23, with special shopping hours for seniors from noon to 3 p.m. General admission is from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Dr Sandy Gregory, Director of NCBAM, said of the need for fundraising: “Timber costs have skyrocketed and this event will help us build many more wheelchair ramps for the frail elderly in the need. We have clients who have not left their homes for months and sometimes years, simply because there is no safe way to use the steps of their home.

Tickets are $7 at the door and $5 in advance at ncbam.org (until September 21). To learn more, visit ncbam.org or call the North Carolina Baptist Aging Ministry at 877.506.2226.
