The traditional Southern luncheon served at Pegram United Methodist Church’s Annual Bazaar and Bake Sale – 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sat., Nov. 21 — is just around the corner.
The menu hasn’t changed; it has been made and offered as part of the event for many decades. The ham, turnip greens, white beans, hot water cornbread, dessert and drink is served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the PUMC Fellowship Hall, across from the Pegram ballfields. The cost is still $8 for adults and $5 for children under 10. Take-out orders are welcome, and a chili and hot dog option is available for $4.
The doors will open at 8 a.m. for all the shoppers who want the first pick of the tables filled to overflowing with hand-crafted items and home-baked goodies by their favorite cooks. Many of the baked goods are perfect for freezing ahead for the upcoming holiday gatherings. Early comers will also find a breakfast sausage ‘n biscuit and beverage for $1 to get them going.
The beloved community event annually features Christmas shopping for good causes. The sale benefits all the local missions the PUMC women’s group does each month. Amber Dorton, group president, named some of those: The Fuel Program, The Ark, Meals on Wheels, The Way, Pegram Elementary’ s Back to School Program, and various other needs within the community.
“You name it, we’ll have it,” said Dorton of the items for sale. Crafters have been busy with their creations throughout the year, she said, adding, “You don’t want to miss the new items in the Wood Shop, Pet Corner, Sports Center, Jewelry and the cheerful Christmas craft and beautiful floral décor.”
