The Flea Market & Collectables Show held Saturday, September 1, at Bloomfield Presbyterian Church on the Green was just one of the many Bicentennial Celebration events being enjoyed by Bloomfield families and friends this year. The “Market on the Green” was a fundraiser and featured a wide range of vendors offering both new and second-hand merchandise, as well as antiques, crafts and gift items.
The church is raising funds to make critical repairs to the building’s sanctuary which was built in 1797. The coffered ceiling, the bowing east exterior wall, the existing eaves, the roof structure and the trusses all need to be rebuilt. Work has begun on the interior renovations with completion expected before Christmas. What a wonderful holiday gift for the congregation.
