Mac & Cheese with a Twist
The Halifax Congregational Church will host a Mac & Cheese Supper from 5 to 6 p.m at the church, next to the Town Hall. They will serve mac & cheese with a twist – a variety of add-ins so diners can customize mac & cheese to their liking, choosing from bacon, sausage, hot dogs, various vegetables, chives, olives, onion rings, and such. Or just enjoy it as it is.
Supper begins at 5 p.m. and will be served right up to 6 p.m. Tickets are only $5. To reserve a ticket in advance, call Susan Mahan at 781-293-0422. Tickets are also available at the door.
Enjoy a fun supper out, before you watch the famous Halifax fireworks display.
