WANCHESE, N.C. –– Dare County Sheriff Doug Doughtie told the men’s group at Bethany UMC about crime in the Outer Banks and the response of his department.
Following his presentation, UM Men President Douglas Drummond presented the sheriff with a copy of Strength for Service to God and Country and asked if he would like a supply of the devotionals for the 65 men and women in his department.
After receiving an enthusiastic “yes” reply, Bethany men raised funds to purchase the books.
“This was done with joy to show our appreciation to those who so unselfishly serve,” said Drummand.
