KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 14, 2016) -- This might look like a normal candy apple booth, but it serves a higher purpose.
Members of Fairview United Methodist Church in Knoxville have sold candy apples at the Tennessee Valley Fair for almost 65 years and all of the proceeds fund their mission work.
“We’re a small church, small group, but it’s an important mission to us and it’s our biggest mission so we just love to do it,” said Dale Money, a member of the church.
For Money and many other church members, the booth is a family affair.
“I’ve been a part of it since I was born basically. Rolling around in the basement … playing with apples,” he said. “We’ve even got our kids and our grandkids into it.”
