Mission trip fundraiser Saturday

On Saturday, Aug. 2, during Pleasant Township Day, members of Pleasant Community Church will hold a yard sale, baked good sale and hot dog and drink sale to support their upcoming mission trip to Ecuador. The team will travel to Cayambe, Ecuador, Aug. 4-11 to help construct an orphanage and to assist a local congregation with their vacation Bible school program in which 300 children participate. The sale will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., and people are asked to make offers on the sale items. The church is located at 673 Pleasant Drive, across from the Warren Manor Nursing Home.
