Lawn Games and Lemonade with First Parish Church – September 30

After shopping til to you drop this Saturday, September 30 at the Golden Ball Tavern Museum’s Barn sale, head on over to the big stone church for lawn games and freshly-squeezed lemonade. Good competive fun is to be had with giant Jenga, ping pong and cornhole.

I note that no croquet is offered because this is the singularly most divisive lawn game to ever be created. I still don’t speak to at least two people due to a Hodgson summer party in 1992. Never mind. Do I question video games being offered as a “lawn game”? Yes, yes I do, and yet I do not wish to be struck by lightning so carry on, First Parish.

Here’s the official stuff:

★ Lawn Games & Lemonade is a community event sponsored by First Parish Church in Weston. All are welcome! ★ 

DATE: Saturday, September 30, 2023

TIME: 12:00pm–3:00pm

LOCATION:First Parish Grounds, 349 Boston Post Road

This is a fun, festival-style event with games, music, and refreshments. Get the most out of the end of summer with a day outside in the fresh air!

We will have a variety of activities to enjoy — from our regulation-size ping pong table, extra-large Jenga (very popular in past years!), cornhole/beanbag toss, ladder ball, and other fun entertainment. We will also have video games set up inside our cool, well-ventilated chapel. And as always, we will have our big backyard, playground, and kid-friendly basketball net. Learn a new game, challenge your family and friends, or team up tournament-style!

The popular DJ Kid Spin will keep the music going and the Lemonade will be flowing! We aren’t mixing up a batch of powdered lemon drink (sorry, Country Time!); we will have freshly squeezed lemonade to go with kettle-popped popcorn and other refreshments.

Join us for one more laid-back, lazy summer day with fresh lemonade, popcorn, and games. Finally, a chance to prove to your neighbors once and for all that you really are a ping pong legend–at least you are unless Dr. K shows up and then you might as well pack it in.

For more information, contact Robert Jones at or Sarah Napoline at

The RAIN DATE is Sunday, October 1st (still starting at 12:00 PM).
