Feeling a little stressed about where to park for your Clam Festival shift at the church?   We have a new solution!!     Judy Colby-George has offered to pick people up and drive them to church for their shift.  If this is something you feel would help you, please email Judy to arrange a time for pick up.   Her email is: [email protected] Judy will pick up riders at one of 2 locations : Liz Reinsborough’s house (44 East Elm St ) or the Garmin lot on Route One.
Please remember that Main Street will be closed most of the weekend so it will take some extra time to get around town.  Thank you so much helping us have a successful 2019 Clam Festival.  

Clam Festival Worship – Join us under the Serendipity tent on the side lawn at First Parish for a Hymn Sing at 10:00 am.

Pie Booth – We still needs lots of pies for the Clam Festival!   We hope to need about 500 pies over the weekend.

There are Graham Cracker Crusts available on the top shelf of the freezer in the kitchen.  Please help yourself! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Liz Reinsborough at [email protected]
