CHESTERTOWN - The Community Methodist Church of Chestertown has scheduled its annual Strawberry Festival and Bazaar for Saturday, July 3, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the church on Church Street. As has been a tradition for many years, there will be strawberry sundaes, strawberry shortcake and strawberry milkshakes. This year along with baked good including pies, a variety of other goods will be offered, including jewelry, books and "trash and treasure" items. Food including hot dogs and hamburgers will be available.
Ongoing activities in the church congregation include the collection of food for the local food pantry, donating to causes like the earthquake in Haiti and other needs as they occur. Currently the church is collecting stuffed animals which will be blessed and a prayer message attached and these will be given to shut-ins and those who need a special prayer.
Sunday services are held at 11 a.m. with coffee afterwards for those wishing to attend and join in fellowship.
