Time to Clean the Berries!
Volunteers are needed the day before the Strawberry Festival
Starting at 3 pm RAIN OR SHINE!
Meet under the Rotary Pavilion at Nevers Park
The Strawberry Festival would not be complete without the berries of course! Fresh picked, hand cleaned and ready to go on Saturday morning! This takes an army of volunteers all gathered with one thing in mind – YOU and the fun you will have the next day – RAIN OR SHINE!
So how does it begin? It begins on Friday, June 12, 2020 with 2,500 pounds (Yep a literal truck load) of fresh strawberries being delivered to the Rotary Pavilion at Nevers Road Park. We will need more than 100 people to clean, hull, and pack the berries into our refrigerated truck where they will await their opportunity to become what every berry dreams of…part of the award winning shortcakes at the 2020 Strawberry Festival! Volunteers are always appreciated and NEEDED to hull and clean berries, as well as assist us in setting up tables/tents and chairs the night before. Volunteers can call Kathy Daugherty 860-306-4117 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers will be treated to a pizza dinner during the working hours. Come meet your friends and neighbors and help out at South Windsor largest community event.
