Since 2007, Deacon Bennie Morris of New Hope Baptist Church, 2433 W. Roosevelt Drive, has been chairman of the Church’s annual bazaar held on the church’s parking lot. Parishioners who participated in the bazaar rent tables and two chairs for a nominal fee to sell their gently used clothing and household items. Funds raised during the bazaar help support the church’s Youth Ministry, according to Deacon Morris. He went on to say things were a bit slow this year but the planning committee for the bazaar is already working to top what they’ve achieved in previous years.
