The Southport United Methodist Women are persevering and holding a very modified version of their annual Country Fair & Lobster Roll Luncheon. On Wednesday, July 15, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Southport United Methodist Church parking lot, you can still enjoy your annual Lobster Roll Luncheon, take-out style! Roll in, roll out! A modified version of our popular Cookie Walk including assorted baked goods, and the plant table will also be there. There will be no Attic Treasures, Books, or Precious Past, so no donations are needed this year.
Current safety protocols will be followed. There will be socially distanced, one-way foot traffic to order, pay for, and pick up your Lobster Roll luncheon, packed to go! The luncheon will include a lobster roll, a bag of chips, bottled water, and a piece of homemade cake, all for just $15. Lobster lunches may be pre-ordered by calling one of the following UMW members between July 2-12: Elaine Goodwin cell # 360-301-6715 or Deb Tukey 633-5144. There will be lunches available for pick-up the day of the event, too.
Also available in the Church parking lot will be the baked goods table, featuring a modified version of our popular Cookie Walk. The Cookie “Walk” will be offered in a different format this year. We have all been baking and will have a wide variety of home baked delicious cookies, as usual! This year, you will get to choose your favorite sweets through an order form that lists popular types (i.e. Chocolate chip, Peanut Butter, etc.) and other likes/dislikes (Nuts, Raisins, Cinnamon, etc.) What will be different is that there will be no public display of cookies. You select your favorites and they will be packed for you. The price has not changed! You can once again get a selection of cookies that in previous years would have fit in a coffee can for $5 or a double size for $10. Cookie order forms will be available to pick up and drop off on the Southport Methodist Church porch from July 2-July 12. Please consider filling out an order ahead of time so we can have your personalized cookie order, with your name on it, ready for prompt pick up at the Church Fair on Wednesday, July 15. Cookie orders may also be filled out the day of the fair and will be filled as soon as possible from the choices available. If you cannot drop by the church to pick up an order form, you may call the Methodist parsonage at 633–2131 and place your cookie order over the phone. Another familiar feature will be the plant table stocked with the 60 plants that UMW member Evelyn Sherman started from cuttings this winter! Everything will take place outside the Church this year.
Southport offers many scenic picnic spots to enjoy your “lobster luncheon to go.” Hendricks Head Beach, the Town Landing, or a Southport friend’s deck! Thank you for your continued participation in this annual event which enables the Southport United Methodist Women to continue their outreach work throughout the year.
