Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church is hosting their annual Christmas Bazaar this Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the church, 16426 Center Road on the Old Mission Peninsula.

It’s a great time to shop for handmade gifts, craft items, holiday ornaments and decorations, and lots more.

Old Mission Gazette is Reader Supported.

They’ll also have an assortment of baked goods for sale, as well. This is a lovely way to stock up on cookies, breads, sweet breads, pies, brownies and lots more yummy baked goods for all those holiday events, dinners and gatherings coming up. (Methodists are known for their baking skills – true story.)

To give you a preview of the bake sale, check out Helen (Lindsey) Mumford’s photo below that she posted on Facebook this week. In the photo, Helen notes, are “pumpkin bread, pineapple bread, zucchini bread, whole wheat sourdough, cinnamon sourdough and white sourdough.”

Wait, pineapple bread?! I will arm wrestle anyone who gets ahead of me for this bread.

A light lunch will be available, as well, which just might include Jo Brown’s famous sloppy joes. For more information, call (231) 223-4393.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
