The 19th Annual Consignment Sale of Martin Luther Church was held on Saturday, March 7, 2020. It was a very windy day! Starting out cool, it did warm up to 70° which brought many people to the church grounds ready to purchase or just enjoy the atmosphere of the day.
MLC volunteers manned the grounds for seven days prior to the sale and gave generously of the time and equipment to check in, log, and line up the equipment that consignors brought in.
Buyers were successful in purchasing planting and harvest equipment, trucks, pickups, hay, hedge posts and a vast assortment of other ag equipment, parts and supplies at the sale beginning at 9:30 that morning. Two sale rings were utilized to sell the extensive amount of items.
Not only do buyers come to the sale but they often are accompanied by their families who spend the day at the church grounds. The MLC Women provide a food stand featuring sandwiches, soup, snacks and drinks along with a wide variety of pies. By the end of the afternoon 540 freshly grilled hamburgers, 120 Polish dogs, 6 gallons of chili, 18 lbs. of bbq, 60 hot dogs, 120 Polish dogs, homemade cookies bars, desserts and over 60 pies were consumed by the hungry participants of the day.
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. ~ Colossians 3:17
God continues to bless this congregation!
We are thankful to the Lord for the talented and hard-working volunteers He has granted to MLC who continue to give of their time and resources to make this day successful.
Martin Luther Church is very thankful to the surrounding communities who continue to support this project with their consignments and also their purchases.
