Community gives back, conducts service to help those affected by fire
By Melissa McCaghren
Dozens gathered Sunday (June 23) in worship and to support local businesses affected by a fire.
It is one of several activities being conducted to help Klemke’s Sausage Haus, the Slaton Family Medical Clinic and others affected by the June 15 fire.
The Ministerial Alliance conducted the service at the gazebo on the City Square. Music was presented by Trinity Evangelical Methodist Church.
Judy Shema with the Ministerial Alliance talked about how God’s work in the beginning was to establish relationships and their importance. “Why (are they important)? Because God knew this thing called life was going to be difficult. And there were going to be challenging times,” she said before the crowd. “Any y’all ever been through a challenging time in your life? Well certainly our merchants here on the square have been through a challenging time this past week, and they need us. They need us, and so Klemke’s? We’re here for you. Dr. Al? We’re here for you. Wilsons? We’re here for you.”
