    The annual Peak House Pantry & White Elephant Sale, a town tradition for almost 45 years, is taking place Saturday, November 22. Stop by early to pick up home-baked pies, quick breads and cookies as well as a wedge of sharp Vermont cheese, and browse the white elephant tables for treasures and novelties.

    Special Collector’s Items at the White Elephant Sale
    We ‘ll have about 40 holiday plates (boxed and in perfect condition) from B&G, Haviland, Royal Copenhagen, and Hummel.

    Food and White Elephant Donations
    If you have a recipe for Aunt Minnie’s to-die-for pecan pie, Grandma’s Snickerdoodles, Mom’s nut bread or a new Bon Appetit recipe that you’re eager to try, then why not take this opportunity to bake for a good cause?

    Any food items as well as last-minute treasures you’d like to donate for the White Elephant Sale can be dropped off at the Peak House on Friday, November 21, 2014, between 2 pm and 4 pm.

    All proceeds support the ongoing maintenance of the Peak House.

    2 – 4 pm
    Jonathan Boyden Jr. House
    120 High Street, Medfield

    Every year the historical society holds a holiday party at an historic house in Medfield. Last year it was at the elegant Granville Mitchell shingle-style house on North Street, built in 1910.

    This year it will be at the more traditional circa 1700 Jonathan Boyden Jr. house at 120 High Street, behind a white stone wall at the intersection of Plain Street. The current owners are John and Michelle Linnert, the people who are seeking to restore and reopen the 1740 Clark tavern next to the Peak House.

    This is a members-only event — but if you’re not presently a member, you’re more than welcome to join the fun and festivities if you join the society and pay at the door.
