A sweet night was had by all who showed up to the Cherry Valley Strawberry Social last evening.  Locals and visitors alike enjoyed fresh local strawberries from Laundry Farms paired with home-baked goodies with dollops of  icecream.  There were even gluten-free and vegan options too!

As they say……. the proof is in the pudding or should we say cake?





Lead Organizers Susan and Glen Wallis
