St. James Celebrates 250 Years with a Blueberry Dessert Festival
Blueberries are in season and it’s time to enjoy one of summer’s special treats. Come to the Blueberry Dessert Festival at Saint James’ Episcopal Church on Saturday, July 26, 12 noon to 4 p.m., or until all the desserts are gone!
Enjoy home-baked blueberry shortcake, with or without whipped cream, blueberry buckle, blueberry pie by the slice or by the whole pie, blueberry muffins and other treats.
All are welcome to join us on the church lawn (weather permitting) for a delicious home-baked treat and then take some home to share. There will be lemonade and iced tea to accompany the blueberry treats.
The Blueberry Dessert Festival is sponsored by the Women of Saint James. All proceeds will support the music ministry of the church, now under the direction of organist and music director, Daniel Frank.
Saint James Episcopal Church is located on historic Route 7A in the heart of Arlington, at the intersection with Route 313 West. While you’re here, take some time to explore the historic churchyard with a self-guided tour and visit the church, consecrated in 1833 to replace an earlier one destroyed by fire.
Established in 1764, this year Saint James is celebrating its 250th anniversary as a community of faith and worship. It is the cradle parish of the Episcopal Church in Vermont. The first Diocesan Convention was held here in 1790.
