Lyme Congregational Church Seeks Volunteers to Assist With Parking Fundraiser During Hamburg Fair

The First Congregational Church of Lyme needs volunteers to assist with their parking fundraiser during the Hamburg Fair

LYME — The First Congregational Church of Lyme seeks volunteers to assist with parking for the Hamburg Fair from Aug. 19 through 21.

This traditional church fundraiser is essential to the church’s goal of renovating its aged kitchen. An updated kitchen will allow congregants to improve their service to homeless neighbors through the New London Community Meal Center. It will also allow for church fellowship.

This volunteer work not only benefits a worthwhile cause but also represents a great opportunity to meet new people while enjoying the outdoors.

If you can spare some time, the church needs your help. And if you have friends who would be willing to assist, then ask them to volunteer too. Moreover, if you know of any teenagers, who need volunteer hours for school or college applications, they would also be welcome.

If you wish to volunteer and/or have any questions, contact Rich Clippinger at or at 860-910-2512 if you can help.
