The 6th annual Strawberry Social hosted by the Athol Recreation Committee was the sweetest event in Cherry Valley last Wednesday.    Event organizers Glen and Susan Wallis were happy once again with the overwhelming response from the community. They would like to thank  Athol Committee members Donna, Janet, Gavin and Ramesh who came out and lended a hand.


We also want to thank Meghan Van Horne (baker extraordinaire) for the  glowing cake (photo above) that she made this year for our annual cake raffle.  The lucky winner was Barry King of Athol.  Other raffle winners included

Kathleen Powderly of Waupoos (Florlora bouquet)

Aidan (Cherry Valley) Framed Canning labels.
