Popular meat market on Saturday

2016-06-15 06:00

FOR the past 40 years the Greytown Lutheran Church meat market has been a popular event as visitors stock up on the tasty range of meats crafted by members of the congregation.

This year is an even more special event - it is the 40th anniversary of the first meat market held in 1976.

St Peter’s Lutheran Church congregation was founded in 1973 and the church property acquired the following year. Funds were needed to be raised so that the church could be built and on 9 November, 1974 the first church bazaar took place in Greytown Town Hall.

1976 marked the start of the annual meat market, which soon established itself as a look-forward-to-annual event in June.

On Saturday 18 June the meat market will have traditional wors, patties, speciality sausages and more in the church hall from 9am.
The congregation expressed its appreciation to all who have supported this fund-raiser over the years.
