Two rummage sales take place each year in the Parish Hall (General Rummage in the Spring and Guy’s Rummage in the Fall).
Christmas Bazaar happens in the parish hall.
Game nights, movie nights, TV nights happen in the parish hall.
Our parish picnic happens in the building and on the south lawn.
A “Potato Bar” precedes the ecumenical Lenten service.
Formerly, the south lot of the property was a “Community Garden”. Other gardens sprang up in town, and we have now abandoned the project. (Deer and rabbits also had something to do with shutting things down).
Of course, the building is used for weddings, baptisms, funerals & receptions.
