Montgomery, AL- The Episcopal Church Women (ECW) will have its annual Bazaar Wednesday, November 15, 2023, from 10-2 p.m. in the Education Building. Sunday School classrooms will be turned into shops for handmade arts and crafts, a pantry of homemade casseroles and breads, cakes, pies and cookies, a silent auction, and a treasure attic full of gently used household goods including kitchen ware, china and silver, holiday and decorative ware and much more.
The Bazaar Luncheon will be from 11-1 for $12 a plate. To-go orders are available via drive-through in the rear parking lot at the tent by the kitchen door. No reservation is needed for to-go orders. Reservations for dining in the Parish Hall are encouraged and can be made by calling the church office at 334-262-1937. The Luncheon will be using some recipes from the ECW’s “St. John’s Disciples Blest Recipes,” including Martha Allen’s chicken and rice casserole, Betty Mathews’ marinated green beans, vinaigrette spring salad mix with fruit, rolls and blueberry crumble.
