LUCKY THIRTEEN – FIFTY-TWO NEW THINGS TO DO IN 2013: NO. 44

menonite 3   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).  Menonite 1

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.  menonite 2

I always make time on the first weekend in November.  Come join us next year or attend one in your area.
