2013 StrawberryFest on June 22, 2013- See you there!
Planning and preparations are well underway for the 26th Annual StrawberryFest! We are all looking forward to summer as we trudge through the snow and we'd love to make you a part of our StrawberryFest event as a crafter, sponsor or volunteer. If you are able to donate a purchased item, gift certificate, or handmade item, we'd love your help and support. If you know a business owner who might be willing to serve as a sponsor, we'd appreciate your suggestions. We'll also need plenty of volunteers again this year. With all of us pulling together, we'll be sure to make the 26th annual StrawberryFest a big success. For more information, or if you have any suggestions on how to make our annual fundraiser bigger and better, please call Patti at 837-4611, ext 129, or send her an email at email@example.com.

For those who like an early start, we'll open our doors on Friday. This year's prizes are currently being collected and one thing we can promise- They are AWESOME!
