During the Greening Up the Mountains Festival in Sylva, the Acteens missions group from Sylva First Baptist Church held a fundraising event for disaster relief in Haywood County.

Ellen Mathis (center) mobilized her fellow Acteens to host a lemonade stand on the front steps of the church. Along with Mathis, from left, are Ayslee Griffin, Lucie Moore, Mattie Moore, Emily Lunnen and Eleanor Brown. The teens sold lemonade, baked goods and handmade jewelry, netting $734.
