Strawberry festival on tap in Shoreham, June 21
SHOREHAM — Mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Gazebo on the Shoreham Town Green. As it has for decades, the Shoreham Congregational Church will offer its famous strawberry shortcake with fresh Vermont strawberries, biscuits, and real whipped cream.
The festival will be take-out only. This year we are offering two sizes. The regular generous portion of shortcake made with one biscuit costs $7, while a smaller portion made with half a biscuit costs $4. Bottled water will be available for an extra $1.
Patrons will follow one-way traffic through the lower floor of the church to pick up their shortcake and bring it outside to eat as they enjoy the music. Patrons should bring picnic blankets or lawn chairs to arrange for seating on the lawn near the gazebo. Nick Thornblade will provide music on his accordion, supported by a free will offering.
This year’s raffle quilt will also be on display — the drawing will be held during Apple Fest in September. You can be the first to purchase tickets for the quilt raffle; they are $3 for one ticket, $5 for 2 tickets, or $10 for 5 tickets. You will not need to be present at the drawing to win the quilt.
