Rummage Sale Thank You From the UMW 
Our rummage sale was a huge success, once again. We grossed over $11,000 to distribute to missions and ministries that aide "the least of these." Each one of you contributed whether it was "hands on" helping during the week of the sale, transporting & pricing, purchasing items from our large and eclectic selection, donating those good usable items, or offering us up in prayer, we appreciate your help. The UMW empties its treasury each year, and much of the proceeds from this sale will be spent before the end of 2018. We have a list in our Red Book, but we are also open to needs within our community, as well. We could not do all of this without you, so a big THANK YOU to all.
The Mission:
