MARLBOROUGH – Peeling apples, adding spices, filling home-made pie crusts and then freezing them was the task recently undertaken by members of the Women’s Fellowship of the First Church in Marlborough, Congregational.
These apple pies, about 30 or so, will be available at the Fellowship’s traditional Meeting House Fair.
The Meeting House Fair at First Church is always held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
This year, the date is Saturday, Nov. 20. Hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Meeting House Fair was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and this November it will be returning after two years.
It’s an old-fashioned fair that features crafts, Christmas items, and jewelry. Homemade baked goods will include cookies, pies and much more. A Trash and Treasure room will offer a variety of items at great prices. There will be a lot of books ready for reading. The popular Basket Raffle featuring themes for all ages will be back located in the Parish Hall.
At lunch time, you can purchase corn chowder to enjoy with a tasty sandwich or buy a “to-go” package to take home. There is something for everyone and everyone is invited to attend.
First Church is located on Bolton Street (Rte. 85) and High streets, just above Union Common in Marlborough.
‘Could I Have This Dance?’
A fun-loving Peg Bouvier, dressed in a skeleton costume, moved to the beat of the Flashback Band by “dancing” with “Fred,” a skeleton mascot at the Marlborough Senior Center.
It was all part of the festivities at a “Halloween Bash” held at the Senior Center last month.
Everyone had a spooktacular time dining on a pork roast dinner prepared by Kennedy’s and served with both an apple grilling sauce and a pumpkin bisque. The Branches were credited for the cupcakes.
MHS senior receives perfect score
Congratulations go to Marlborough High School senior Aiden Grocki for receiving a perfect score on his AP 2-D Art and Design exam.
Aiden was one of 152 students worldwide to receive a perfect score.
Aiden and his teacher, Val Sophos, have been credited for all of the hard work that went into this. Despite all of the challenges of the last school year, Aiden remained dedicated to his art production.
His performance on the AP 2-D Art and Design Exam in May 2021 was so superior that it falls into an extremely select category — Aiden earned every point possible on this challenging, college-level examination.
Rummage Sale planned at Methodist Church
The Methodist Church at 52 Church St. in Marlborough will hold a Rummage Sale on Nov. 13 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Individuals can fill a 13-gallon bag for $5.
Cornhole Tournament a success
The first Marlborough Lions Club Cornhole Tournament on Oct. 24 was a fun, successful event. “The Outsiders” team not only won the tournament but also won the 50/50 Raffle.
The host was the Lost Shoe Brewing and the sponsors were Pete’s on the Main and the Short & Rowe Funeral Home.
The Lions’ thank Boston Cornhole, which ran the tournament as well as all the teams who competed and all who made donations.
The members of the Marlborough Lions Club were helped out by members of the Holliston Lions Club who came out to play and support them. The money raised will help fund the service organization’s programs in the community and beyond.
