The United Methodist Women are serving a delicious, Southern-style ham, white beans, and turnip greens luncheon Sat., Nov. 23rd to raise money for missions and ministries of their Pegram church. The traditional lunch is a delicious part of the annual event which also features a bake sale, and Christmas crafts, decorations, and gifts.
The Annual Bazaar and Bake Sale, from 8 a.m.-2 p.m., offers great shopping and eating opportunities at Pegram United Methodist Church across from the ball field. Orders for smoked 15-20 lb. turkeys for Thanksgiving, at $40 each, will also be taken.
The popular luncheon menu, served 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., has not changed in more than half a century. The old-time hot water cornbread recipe, prepared and passed on by Linda Hardin and other team members, is especially beloved by visitors.
Adult plates are $8; child plates (for age 10 and under) are $5. Chili or hot dog plates are $4. Each plate includes dessert and drink, and take out orders are welcome. For large advance orders call 646-6033.
