Monkton news for June 21
MONKTON — The annual Russell Memorial Library Strawberry Festival and Book Sale is scheduled for Sunday, June 24, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Monkton Volunteer Firehouse. We’ll be serving locally grown strawberries, cake and ice cream, lemonade and hot dogs. The strawberries have been generously donated this year by Last Resort and Full Belly Farms, both located in Monkton.
Entertainment will feature the Vermont Ukulele Society. They meet in Bristol twice a month and have developed a repertoire of songs from “The Great American Songbook” and popular tunes as well.
Our event has traditionally held a silent auction of local goods and services, again donated by restaurants, golf courses, and craftsman. Some items include gift certificates from The Public House, Folinos, Shelburne Farms, Cedar Knoll, Rocky Ridge, and many more.
Need a summer read? Our book sale can’t be beat for variety and great prices. We sell some collectible books in addition to children’s material, novels, and a wide selection of fiction.
