2016 Press Release

The “Special Giving Project” at the Peach Cobbler Relief Sale will be clean water. Around the world, one in 10 people don’t have access to clean, safe water. Women and girls spend hours every day walking to collect water to drink or use for cooking and washing. And farmers lose crops when they can’t access water for irrigation. MCC works with local partners to make sure people have access to clean water closer to their homes, both today and in the future. This includes projects such as: constructing systems for collecting rainwater, digging wells and building dams for drinking or irrigation, training people to construct and maintain water pumps, and teaching sanitation and hygiene practices.

The menu of activities on Friday and Saturday includes a hymn sing and sale preview beginning at 7:00 p.m., Friday.  Saturday’s events begin with a sale preview and breakfast at 8:00 a.m.  The auction begins shortly after at 9:00 a.m. — don’t miss the delicious quilts, sumptuous handicrafts, and yummy antiques.  If you come too late, you won’t be there for the best items as the auction ends mid afternoon when all is sold and gone!   There is a quilting demonstration, children’s activities, & a homemade craft corner!  BUT most of all you are welcome to some down-right good home cooking — barbequed chicken and peach cobbler!  Everyone is welcome!
