2006 Mennonite Relief Sale in New Hamburg, Ontario


I’m putting in a plug for the annual Mennonite Relief Sale being held this Saturday (May 27)in New Hamburg, Ontario. This event involves 2,000+ volunteers each year and since 1967 has raised more than $12 million for the relief efforts of Mennonite Central Committee.

What will you find at the sale? The famous quilt auction, lots of great food, homemade pies, indoor and outdoor plants, and a tent featuring items from Ten Thousand Villages.

Events start at 7:00 am at the Fairgrounds in New Hamburg and the Quilt Auction usually begins at 8:30 am. For a partial preview of this year’s quilts, visit the online gallery. Maps to New Hamburg can be found here.

If you’re in the area, this is an event you shouldn’t miss. As an added bonus, many people in New Hamburg hold their annual garage sales on Saturday.
