Strawberry Festival 2009

The day dawned cool and cloudy - perfect weather for finishing the set-up details.

Book Fair tables groaned under the weight of their cargo, and Boy Scouts carried out last minute chores.

Boy Scouts also performed a dignified flag raising ceremony to mark the beginning of the festivities.

 

The Windham Community Band played the Star Spangled Banner, and continued to delight the audience.

Celebrity Chefs grilled and grilled - and everyone's mouth watered!
Face Painting was very popular!

More fun for all ages!
The Nesmith Library Summer Reading Program, and the FLOW Raffle Table enjoyed lines all day.

The ever-popular Dunk Tank, and some of the Good Sports who took a dunking!

She's ready for anything!

Down he goes!

A popular target!

Oh no! Is that a Yankees hat?!

 

Yes, it IS a Yankee's hat!!
