Tree Decorating Day

All Hands on Dec-orating!

It was a beautiful, sunny early winter day on the Lyme Common, as dozens of families and friends decorated many of the trees that will be part of the December 1st Tree Festival, the grand community event created by The Utility Club to fund scholarships for Lyme college students.

CommunityCare of Lyme was pleased to provide a lunch of soup, chili, warm drinks and sweet treats, with the help of several generous cooks and bakers.

It was a fun day, and a great way to spread the work — and cheer — across two weekends!

Bargain Barn in the News!

The Lyme Women’s Fellowship Bargain Barn had a great write up in the Valley News. Click here to read the article.

The Bargain Barn is a great place to find gently used (and sometimes new) clothing, accessories, linens, housewares, bric-a-brack, and so much more. An amazing crew of volunteers puts together this lovely shop, with a lot of care and hard work — and LOTS of donations. You may donate items in good shape from May through mid-July.

Not only will you find useful items and treasures if you shop and a good home for items if you donate, but you will contribute to great causes. Proceeds from Bargain Barn purchases support scholarships, local programs, and international outreach. Selected donations are sent directly to those in need, and items that don’t sell are sent on to other local organizations serving those who may need them.

Bargain Barn Hours:

Now Through Labor Day
Monday, Wednesday, Friday 1:30-4:30pm
Saturday 9:00am-3:00pm

Columbus Day Weekend
Winter clothing sale, hours to be announced.

Stop by!

If you have questions, contact Joan Schaafsma through the Lyme Congregational Church Office, 603-795-2850.
