Once again the Athol Town Hall was filled with happy faces enjoying local strawberries from Laundry Farms,  (thanks Jean and Terry!) along with homebaked cakes donated by so many wonderful bakers in our community and a big scoop of icecream.  Thanks to all our hullers, servers, bakers and helpers.

Special thanks to the event organizers Glen and Susan Wallis of Cherry Valley for organizing this event for the 3rd year!  The hall once again looked so welcoming  and the strawberries were oh so sweet!

As in past years Susan and Glen invited wonderful celebrity bakers to donate their baking talents:  Anne House of Mad Dog Gallery, Chris Wylie of the Manse, Cynthia Peters of From the Farm Cooking School, Graham Davies aka the Bald Photographer,  Jenny & Kyle Otsuka owners of Zest Kitchen Store, Henry Willis of Humble Breads and Meghan Van Horne of the Regent Cafe who donated the wonderful Strawberry Cake she created especially for our raffle.

A steady flow of people attended throughout the 2 hours.  The lovely desserts were sooooo good that by  5:30 pm persons were asking for seconds.  Once everyone had been served once Glen announced that seconds were welcome at no extra charge.  We have a feeling there were even thirds and fourths!!!!!

Fun was had by all…….
