August 5, 2018 - The West Coast Mennonite Relief Sale Annual Meeting is coming up soon! It will take place on Sunday, September 9th at 4PM in the Reedley MB Church Social Hall. A light dinner will be served at no charge. All are encouraged to attend as there will be elections of officers and the opportunity to discuss various aspects of the West Coast Mennonite Relief Sale.
July 30, 2018 - The Board for the West Coast Mennonite Relief Sale announces a permanent change in the dates of the sale starting in 2019. The sale will be the second full weekend of April unless Easter falls on that date, if it does the sale would then be on the third weekend of April. So mark your calendars for the sale on April 12 and 13, 2019! See you then.
- Why change the date? There
have been several issues we have been having to cope with over the last
few years. Two large events happening every year going on in Fresno and
Clovis. The third event happens every 4 years when the National Youth
Conference of the MB Church happens. It
takes away our youth in the area as well as parents and board members
who are important to the Sale. We are hoping with these changes to
increase the crowd size and make the Sale more accessible to everyone.
