The annual strawberry festival at Christ Lutheran Church, to be held June 5th, has a new theme this year. Called “Ragtime ‘n’ Berries”, it features entertainment from Fred Lehotay and the Ragtimers, the acclaimed band with a reputation for upbeat music. Their top-tapping tunes are sure to bring a smile to your face and put a bounce in your steps.
Also new this year is the sound of bagpipe music which will greet you at the church entrance. Pastor Frank Watson will play a special selection of bagpipe favorites to put you in a festive mood for the fun to follow.
Of course, one thing hasn’t changed, and that’s the strawberry dessert which concludes this gala afternoon. The terrific kitchen crew knows how to put all the ingredients together for a wonderful and delicious finale.
A ticket costs $10 for an adult or $5 for a child under twelve. You can purchase tickets between Sunday worship services beginning April 24th or from secretary Karin Holldorf in the church office during the week. The phone number of the church office is (732) 350-0900. The church is located at 40 Schoolhouse Rd. in Whiting.
