After days of continuing rain, the weather had turned to drizzle but this didn’t dampen the spirits of those in search of a great dinner topped off with fresh local strawberries, shortcake and ice cream. This was one of the more successful Ham and Strawberry Dinners in recent years according to the organizing team. On Saturday, 17 June the parking lot was full which brought a steady flow of people out to enjoy this special evening treat. From 5 – 6:30 pm, the tables were full in the parish hall.
Members of the parish were hard at working in preparation over the days immediately before the dinner. The tables were decorated beautifully which added a nice summer touch and hopefully offered encouragement for the season finally to make an official appearance. The photos show the parish teams taking a few quiet moments before the arrival of guests.
Sincere thanks to all those who helped make the dinner a great experience for those who attended and a great success for the parish. Special thanks to each person who made any kind of a donation toward food or supplies for the dinner.
