UCC Southbury hosts annual Strawberry Festival

The United Church of Christ, Southbury, invites strawberry lovers everywhere to the church green, located at 283 Main Street North in Southbury, for the 43rd annual Strawberry Festival, to be held Sunday, June 9 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Come for the fresh, homemade strawberry shortcakes, and stay for the toe tapping sounds of Band O’ Brothers’ Irish-American Folk Music. Try your luck in the 4th annual strawberry pie bake-off, or in the raffle supporting the outreach of the UCC senior high mission group. For more information visit www.uccsouthbury.org/.
