It's a Winter Wonderland

Bridgewater, MA – Central Square Congregational Church, UCC, 71 Central Square, Bridgewater, has announced that its annual Fall fair, this year themed “Winter Wonderland,” will be held Friday, November 2 from 6:30pm-8:30pm and Saturday, November 3 from 9:00am-2:00pm, with a full turkey dinner following with two seatings, 5:00pm and 6:30pm. People may buy their turkey dinners and take them home with the popular take-out option. Perfect for families with kids, students, those that are less mobile, or anybody who just wants a home-cooked meal without the cooking. With generous portions of homemade turkey, side dishes, and dessert, it’s a great value for a great cause.

The fair itself boasts shopping and food as its main activities. Visitors will find a variety of homemade pies, baked goods, and candy (including homemade fudge!) available for purchase. There will also be their famous “cookie walk” – purchase an empty container, then make your way through tables filled with homemade cookies and treats and fill your container with the ones you like best. One price, as many cookies as will fit in your container!

There will also be silent auction gift baskets, homemade craft and gift items, holiday decorations, jewelry, and “attic treasures.” Leave your young ones in the supervised children’s room while you shop, where there will be games, activities, and fun food. NEW THIS YEAR: Storyteller at 11am – free!

For those that like to eat, there are plenty of opportunities as well. Friday evening, enjoy a piece of homemade pie and a cup of coffee. On Saturday, plan your day around the luncheon treats of Chef Beth Basler: homemade soup and chowder; specialty salads; sandwiches; and this year for the first time, “walking tacos”! What is a walking taco? Take a bag of chips of your choice (choose from various flavors of Doritos and Fritos), then add any taco ingredients you like… seasoned meat, cheese, tomatoes, sour cream, lettuce, salsa… right into the bag. Grab a spoon, and dig in! All the flavorful goodness of tacos without the mess!

Then, in the evening, visitors should plan on attending the turkey dinner, either at 5:00 or 6:30, or order it to take home. Ticket prices for the turkey supper are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors/students, $5 for children under 12, and $30 for a family of 4 or more (up to two adults and their children). Supper includes home-cooked turkey and all the trimmings, side dishes, dessert, and a beverage (eat-in only). Advance reservations, for either dine-in or take-out, are recommended. Call 508-697-6016. Dinner tickets may also be purchased during the fair hours earlier that day.

100% of proceeds from the fair benefit Central Square Congregational Church.
