BAFTA – Be a Friend to All

First Baptist Church of Hudson BAFTA Women’s Group meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM from September to June.  Dinner meetings began at 6:00 PM.  All women of the church and community are invited to join us. Our group is part of the Southern Monadnock Association of Vermont/NH American Baptist Women. The Ladies hold a breakfast on the third Saturday of the month at 7:30 am at The Pine St. Eatery.

Monthly meetings consist of a program, refreshments provided by two members who act as hostesses for the month and a business meeting. Our Treasury is funded with money we earn from public dinners, yard sales, pound parties, harvest auctions, cutlery sales, “Pie Sunday” pie sales and donations.

Other activities include:

  • Brunch Bunch – Meets 3rd Sunday at Donna’s place for fellowship and food.
  • BAFTA Collections:
    • Cell phones – Donated then refurbished at the Verizon Store and sent to service men and women overseas.
    • Educational stamps – Boxtops, Campbell Soup labels and cancelled stamps are collected for education institutions. Greeting card fronts are donated to nursing homes for crafts.
