The 2019 World Hunger Auction and associated activities were a great success.  The year was filled with music programs, walking, biking, golfing, making snow cones in the rain for the Old Order German Baptist Annual Meeting as well as selling quilts and many other fine items on auction day.  The committee is in awe of the amount of time, effort, and resources that so many people bring to this effort.  A heartfelt and sincere thank you goes out to all who were involved in any way.

Heifer International Dairy Network in the Andes of Ecuador Project…$33,750
