The Plymouth Church in Framingham warmly invites the entire MetroWest community to its biannual Fundraising Auction on Saturday, November 10, at 6:00 p.m., featuring both silent and live auctions of items donated by more than 50 local businesses as well as by members of the congregation. Tickets are $25 per person in advance, $30 at the door and include admission as well as a variety of mouth-watering appetizers and desserts.
On Wednesday, October 10, at 7:00 p.m., The Plymouth Church in Framingham will present “Know before You Go: Exploring Ballot Question 3,” a panel discussion and Q&A session on the issue of transgender rights in public accommodations. Question 3 on the November 6 ballot is a referendum on the 2016 Massachusetts law prohibiting discrimination against transgender people in public spaces. A “Yes” vote on Question 3 would uphold the non-discrimination provisions, while a “No” vote would repeal the law. Speakers include Tracy McKay, mother of two transgender children, and Taj Smith, Faith Organizing Director of Freedom for All Massachusetts, a bipartisan coalition working to update civil rights laws to include nondiscrimination protections for transgender people.
All voters are encouraged to attend. Your presence will help demonstrate to our communities the importance of being informed before voting in November. The Plymouth Church in Framingham is handicapped-accessible, with ample parking behind the building. Light refreshments will be served after the program.
On Saturday, September 29, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., The Plymouth Church in Framingham is excited to invite the entire community to its annual Fall Fair. Now in its 50th year, The Plymouth Church Fall Fair has become a beloved autumn tradition.
