Every year before Thanksgiving, Enid hosts The Mennonite Relief Sale http://reliefsales.mcc.org/sales/oklahoma-mennonite-relief-sale. They are held all over the country but we are lucky enough to have one in our community.
I always find wonderful crafts, books, food and the pies are to die for! A lot of people go just for the pies to put in the freezer for the holidays. Just after lunch on Saturday the pie counter had a sign that read “450 pies sold this year, get here early!” Obviously I didn’t get any pie. I did eat bratwurst and New Year’s cookies (a lot like doughnut holes).
And then there were the quilts. My mother used to quilt and I saw how much time and effort went into them. They were auctioned off to the public. Some of these quilts went for over $4700.00 each, all for a good cause; education around the world, disaster relief, and many other projects to help people in need.
I always make time on the first weekend in November. Come join us next year or attend one in your area.
