4th Annual Strawberry Festival June 25 to Benefit Vaughan Community Services

Volunteers for Vaughan Community Services are busy planning the 4th Annual North Conway Strawberry Festival, to benefit for the programs of Vaughan including the Vaughan Learning Center (formerly North Conway Daycare), and the Conway area food pantry.  The event will be held June 25 from 11 am until 4 pm on the North Conway Congregational Church campus right next to the “Reverence for Life” building.

The Strawberry Festival offers a fun day of feasting on locally grown fresh strawberries served in shortcakes, in smoothies and in hand-dipped chocolate covered treats.  There will be free kids games, balloon animals, live music and a white elephant sale of treasures.   The event is an old-fashioned day of family fun with free activities for kids, a chance to meet and greet neighbors, friends and visitors to the region.  Always a sell-out, strawberry treats are affordably priced and will be served while supplies last.  To add to the old-fashioned fun, on display will be several beautiful and very rare antique wagons courtesy of Sut Marshall and several antique cars courtesy of Bob Holmes.  Tours of the historic “First Church” are available to those interested in learning about the living history of the nearly 250 year-old building.

Vaughan is pleased to be a featured event and partner with the Mt. Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce in their “Fresh Taste of Spring” promotion to drive business during the value season of April – June.  Vaughan is very appreciative of the many sponsors of the 3rd Annual Strawberry Festival including:  Profile Motors, Settlers Green, White Mountain Oil and Propane, Conway Daily Sun, Conway Scenic Railroad, Leone McDonnell and Roberts, and Whitelaw Electric.   Abe Wrobleski very generously helps defray the cost of the festival tent.
