Join us for an MCC Great Lakes Comforter Bash in Goshen!
We are gathering for the fifth annual Comforter Bash for MCC in northern Indiana/southern Michigan. A handmade comforter provides not only warmth but also a tangible message to people that their needs are not forgotten. The comforters will be distributed by MCC around the world.
All are invited to knot comforters for Mennonite Central Committee. Women, men, youth groups, friends and family are invited! Come and go as you are able.
Dates: Friday, November 8 (9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.)
Saturday, November 9 (9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.)
*Lunch available for a donation on both days.
Location: Pleasant View Church (58529 County Road 23, Goshen, IN 46528)
