Several members of the Winchester United Methodist Church Sunday School Program and the United Methodist Men gathered Saturday morning at the corner of Main and Cherry to host a fund-raiser for the Hoots girls. The Sunday School students held a bake sale, while the men sold burgers and hot dogs.
Abigail and Autumn Hoots lived with their father, Jeremy, and attended the UMC regularly.
In August, their father died unexpectedly and the girls went to live with their mother.
“But they still come to Winchester and spend the weekends with their grandmother, Delores Hoots.They still attend our Sunday School,” Robin Lyons, minister of the Winchester UMC, said.
“Everything you see here is donated,” Lyons said. “One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the girls.”
Lyons said the UMC hosts cookouts several time throughout the year for special causes.
“This is our fourth one this year,” he said. “The money we raise here today, will go to the girls’s educational fund.”
