First Parish celebrates Fourth of July

The First Parish Church did it up big again for the Town of Bridgewater's Fourth of July celebration. Many church members pitched in to put on the annual Snack Bar, Lemonade Stand and Book Sale. After viewing the downtown parade, customers lined up for the fresh and tasty food and drinks... including our popular strawberry shortcake and homemade lemonade. Books, CDs and DVDs sold well at the Book Sale.

The Rev. Ed Hardy and Janet Dye, member of the church's Green Sanctuary Committee, at the information table on the BSU Quad.

This year, we added an information table on the Bridgewater State University Quad along with artisans and other vendors. On display were assorted pamphlets on Unitarian Universalism, the First Parish Church and environmental issues. Free tap water was also available for people and pets. Many folks, young an dold, stopped by for a quick drink and a chat. Our simple environmental message: "You don't need to buy bottled water. Tap water tastes just as good and drinking it is better for the planet, creating less plastic waste." People were also encouraged to recycle their cups. All in all, it was a great day!
