West Nash UMYF try to do several fundraisers a year. We have sold notecards and calendars. car washes, selling pizza coupons, bake sales, servant auctions and dessert auctions.
The youth receive a newsletter each month telling them of the upcoming events and trips that will be taking place.
The youth usually have two parties a year. One is held at Christmas where we get together at someone's home and exchange gifts. The other party is held in May and is the end of year party. We usually pick a place where we have never been. (examples:adventure landing park, pool party,etc.)
