St. Peter’s Italian Bazaar needs volunteer bakers this week

Aug 10, 2021 278

The pandemic forced the cancellation of the St. Peter’s Italian Bazaar in 2020, but the 2021 version is set for later this week and volunteers are needed to bake, decorate and package thousands of cookies for the annual fundraiser. The cookie bake is set for Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 10-11, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parish hall at 72 Federal St.

“It’s a way to give back and help our parish stay strong,” said Nancy Taliento-Goodwin, a parishioner at St. Peter Church for more than 60 years. “We now have multiple generations working on the cookie bake. It’s a way to have the younger generations start to volunteer. If they volunteer with the church, which they are a part of, then they will look beyond that and volunteer in the community.”
