Treat Street Fun Facts: Calvary Bible Church

Treat Street fun facts! Thanks to volunteers from Calvary Bible Church, the Fair chapel serves delicious coffee drinks and pastries during the Fair. The iced mochas are a particular hit during the Fair. Did you know that proceeds from their Fair sales support several local ministries – Interfaith Food (feeding hungry families in Nevada County), Christian Encounter (residential care and school for young people aged 16-25), and Booth Family Center (housing for families getting back on their feet).  Thank you, Calvary Bible Church, for all your hard work on Treat Street!
