Flower Arranging. Who doesn’t love a flower show and competition? The Thursday Garden Club and the Sudbury Garden Club are collaborating on a flower show/competition called “Blooms of Sudbury Then and Now.” There will be several divisions of floral arrangements for adults and children, and all of the divisions will be judged by an esteemed horticulturalist. Ribbons will be awarded. All displays will be located at First Parish in Sudbury Town Center. The divisions will be posted soon.


Baking Contest & Farm Produce. Summer is upon us, and it is time to think about growing your vegetables for the Grange Hall competition! All kinds of vegetables will be judged as well as jams, jellies, cakes, pies, cookies, and breads. Pickling, piccalilli, eggs and salsa will also be considered for ribbons by local experts. A junior class for children aged 6-14 will feature painted eggs, as well as, decorated vegetable displays. They will be judged on originality and appearance. Join in on the old-fashioned fun with your favorite recipes or try new ones!
