Strawberry Luncheon

Strawberry Luncheon

Our Annual Strawberry Luncheon is held this year on Tuesday June 12.

Food orders consist of a sandwich (choice of Egg Salad, Ham Salad or Tuna Salad), chips, and, of course, a large fresh strawberry shortcake.

Orders may be picked up at the church between 10:30 am and 12:30 pm.  Deadline for regular orders – Wednesday prior to the week of the lunch.

Order forms are mailed to businesses in town at the end of May. Lunches are delivered to the businesses at a time determined by them on the day of the lunch.  Deadline for business orders – Wednesday prior to the week of the lunch.

Typically 60 flats of strawberries are hulled and prepared by church members and friends.  The Women’s Fellowship bakes all the biscuits for the shortcakes.  A team of people prepare the sandwich fillings and make the sandwiches and shortcakes.  Another team of people prepares the orders and delivers the meals.
