MCC Relief Sale


Yes!!
This ranks as one of my favorite events of the year.
The MCC Relief Sale starts tonight...
I have my check list complete.
  • Stop in at MCC headquarters to pick up food tickets for our family....check
This of course is not necessary but we'll get to the Wareneki line up quicker than you will.
Seriously...where else can you get home made Mennonite Food?

  • Go to bank to get toonies for the granchildren so that they might peruse through the toys and bring home things that will possibly go to back to MCC in the near future...check

  • Go to the local MCC store to see if there is anything I'd like to bid on...and oh..there was.  I would share what it is with you but you might go there and up bid me.....check

  • Bring home treasures of the day.  All those goodies for $8.  I collect metal vintage tray $1...note to yourself...:)  I love that old tin cake pan...$1.  I found that sugar dispenser...thinking ahead to Portzelky at our annual New Years Day Party...$1.  OH..and I some time ago thought I would not ever need a jello mold again...so I took it to MCC. I found another one...$1 complete with changeable lid designs.  The old enamel lid...they charged $2 for that..probably knowing it would make a perfect photo op sometime.  The old enamled bowl...$1.  It also will make a perfect photo op someday.  
OH...and when I stopped at MCC headquarters I asked if they would have MGCC cookbooks on sale at the sale...and yes they will.  We won't be doing a book signing this year but we have donated a cookbook for the auction that we have all signed..."with love" to support needy people all around the world.  Earlier this year at the Fresno Relief Sale a book was auctioned for $1000. Whether this  book goes for $10 or $1000....the money belongs to God and may he be honored with all the time and effort these volunteers who spend endless hours getting ready for the sale and work over hot vats of oil and cooking pots to support needy people around the world.
The sale opens at 5 pm...see you there?
If you spot me...come say Hi...I'd love to chat!!
all for now....

    You write so wittily. I always grin reading your posts. Hope that the grands spend those loonies wisely and that your photo ops find a good home in your cupboards. I had no idea that you collected tin trays...so do I. I have two. Wait. That's not a collection yet.

    Have fun and sell a lot of cookbooks!

  4. Wish I were close enough to attend. There is a sale later in the fall up in Kansas that we have been able to attend on occasion. It is like nothing I have ever seen.

  5. We may just see you around the table tonight...though we'll likely be in the ticket line-up while you enjoy your meal:) I'm hoping you will be there tomorrow when they auction off 'the book'...as our in-house reporter.

    It's for a worthy cause, after all!

  12. Fall festivals are great, especially when the money raised goes to greatly deserving causes. No Mennonite events here in SLC but the Greek Orthodox festival(30+ years!) was awesome as usual. It is now a 4 day event!

    Love that the grands can learn to shop and donate early on!
