The Middleton Congregational Church had a presence at the Topsfield Fair for over a half century. It was a 10-day annual fundraiser and outreach opportunity accomplished through providing food for sale to the fair patrons and workers. It was run by a dedicated core team who organized and managed the booth operations, while over 100 volunteers of MCC members and friends contributed their time to run the booth. It was a great time to get to know people from the church while serving for a great cause.

In 2017, the church made the difficult decision to discontinue the food booth and will look for other ways to have a ministry presence at the fair. We are so thankful for the many years we were able serve there, and the wonderful volunteers who made it all possible.
