In response to the ongoing global public health crisis, the New Hamburg Mennonite Relief Sale team decided to cancel our in-person gathering for the second year in a row. We are disappointed. But, the success of the 2020 live online auctions has encouraged the NHMRS team to recreate the relief sale experience by broadcasting two live online auctions on May 28 and May 29, including a live host, live auctioneers, dozens of auction items (including over 150 quilts, the opportunity to purchase an NHMRS-in-a-box and more). Mark your calendars and save the date.
