Cutting Bee to kick off annual Strawberry Festival
- Published: June 1, 2016
The annual Strawberry Festival will return this year on Friday and Saturday, June 10 and 11, at the First Presbyterian Church.
The event begins with a Cutting Bee on Thursday June 9, 9:30 a.m.–1 p.m. Volunteers will meet to cut 30 flats of berries from Tom’s Market. A salad lunch will be provided when the work is all done, and participants are invited to bring a dish to share. Bakers are asked to bring a homemade cake for the festival. Those who would like to volunteer should RSVP to 767-7751.
On Friday, June 10, from 6–9 p.m., the festival’s Village Night will be held, and all are invited to come out and enjoy fresh strawberries, cakes and ice cream. The YS Community Band will perform at 7 p.m.
The festival continues during Street Fair on Saturday, June 11, 11 a.m.–3 p.m. — or until the sweet treats run out.
