Do you have an auction item you would like to donate? It's not too early to start lining up auction items for this fall's sale!
Ideal auction items may include antiques and collectibles, event tickets, vacation packages, vehicles, hand crafted wood items as well as power tools, furniture, or most anything in new or excellent condition. If you don't have anything to give but would like to participate, consider buying something that you like or enjoy to donate. Or get together with friends or family to make a donation together.
Storage is available prior to the festival. If you have something in mind, please contact auction coordinator Tim Steiner: 503-381-6436, firstname.lastname@example.org.
In a wonderful festival fundraising tradition, Harley and Marolyn Brenneman invite friends of Mennonite Central Committee to enjoy a delicious barbecue at their North Albany home on Sunday, Aug. 4.

Are sustainability issues close to your heart? Do you travel with your own fork so you can skip the plastic-ware? Do you love recycled paper? You can make a big difference at the Festival for World Relief!
A volunteer is needed to help make the 2013 festival – our food service in particular – more environmentally friendly. You can help manage composting, ordering “green” supplies, and coordinating a group to wash the silverware. It’s a perfect job for a dedicated young adult or other friend of creation.
For more info, contact festival food services coordinator Kiara Yoder at 503-278-6243 or email@example.com.
The Fourth Annual Challenge is On!
The 2013 festival quilting challenge invites our talented quilters to create a hand- or machine-quilted kitchen apron or table runner (aprons need not be completely quilted but must have quilted work on it). Any combination of fabrics, colors, or other non-fabric items and techniques may be used. Creativity is encouraged! Festival visitors will vote on their favorite entry, and the winner will be announced when auctioned with the second group of quilts.
