Holiday Events on Saturday 12/5

Kick off your holiday season in Brownsville at one or all of the happenings taking place on December 5th!

On Saturday, December 5th, various committees at the Brownsville Community Church, West Windsor’s Beautification Committee, West Windsor Fire Department and Albert Bridge School will sponsor the following festive holiday events:

  • Brownsville Christmas Bazaar & Luncheon at Town Hall from 9-2
  • Community Holiday Carol Sing at Brownsville Community Church at 3:00
  • Brownsville Holiday Tree Lighting, Caroling, Fire Pit & Refreshments at Town Hall at 4:30
  • Christmas Concert at Brownsville Community Church at 7:00 PM

Start with Christmas shopping at the famous Brownsville Christmas Bazaar on Saturday from 9 a.m. until 2:00 at the Brownsville Town Hall (Route 44 & Brownsville Hartland Rd.) The ladies of the United Methodist Women’s group have, once again, pulled together a fine gathering of artisans and crafters who will be selling their wares at the Christmas Bazaar.

Then recharge with a fine lunch starting at 11:00, when the ladies will be offering an array of delicacies including homemade soups and sandwiches as well as freshly baked deserts.

This dedicated group of women has accomplished many things this past year. All of the monies that the UMW raise through seasonal bazaars, craft sales and food events go to various charities as well as to sustain the greater church community.  The UM Women’s group meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month and openly encourages any like-minded individuals to join them in their efforts. Contact Becky Pyke at 802-674-2364 for more information on the Bazaar.  Contact Ann Matthews for information on the United Methodist Women’s group at 802-484-5502.

At 3:00, carolers can gather inside the Church for a sing-along. Albert Bridge School faculty, students and staff will join in with the community in this informal sing-along featuring traditional Christmas and contemporary holiday songs accompanied by Christian Huebner on piano.  Contact Albert Bridge School Principal, Jenifer Aldrich at 802-484-3344 for information on the Holiday Carol Sing-Along.

Immediately following at approximately 4:15, you can wander next door to the West Windsor Town Hall for the Holiday Tree Lighting which will take place at 4:30. There will be caroling around the tree and fire pit with refreshments.  Contact Jim Curry of the W. Windsor Beautification Committee at 802-484-0138 for more information on the Holiday Tree Lighting.

At 7:00 the community will be treated to the Brownsville Community Church’s Christmas Concert.

Rev. Christian Huebner has arranged this concert which will feature a collection of choral, instrumental, organ and piano musical offerings. This concert is the last of a series of four free-to-the-public concerts that Brownsville Community Church has offered to the public this year.

Thank you to W. Windsor Fire Department who put up the lights on the Holiday Trees, United Methodist Women’s group for organizing and running the famous Brownsville Christmas Bazaar, the Brownsville Beautification Committee for arranging for the tree lighting, Albert Bridge School staff, faculty and students for their parts in the carol-sing and Brownsville Community Church Music Committee for making possible yet again one more free-to-the public concerts.
