Commerce's 'Merry Marketplace' Goes Online; Library Renovation Near Completion

First United Methodist Church

Amy Stark, with the Merry Marketplace for Missions presented by the First United Methodist Church of Commerce, says the annual event is going online this year because of the threat of the coronavirus.  Bidding on items -- many homemade -- will take place Wednesday through 3 p-m. Saturday (Dec. 3-5).  The event raises money for local mission projects of the church.

Amy also represents the Commerce Public Library and says the renovation of the library building, including the installation of cypress spindles around the top of the more than 100-year-old building, is nearly complete.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
