Virtual Strawberry Festival Berry BoosterBerry poster

Dear members, friends, and community members, 


For the past 27 years the Strawberry Festival hosted by the United Christian Church in Lincolnville Center has been a beloved tradition for many in our community. Volunteers pick, hull, and mash the strawberries and then make and sell strawberry shortcakes to friends, neighbors, and visitors. Pies, hot dogs with Ruth’s famous relish, baked goods, and preserves are sold.  Children and families ride their bikes in the parade, make bubbles on the front lawn, and get their faces painted. Local musicians offer live music and the mood is joyful and celebratory!  


In this season of not only pandemic but also a late frost and drought, we are unable to pick berries this year, so, alas, there will be no Strawberry Festival in Lincolnville Center this summer. But the UCC 'church in the center' is searching for Berry Boosters to help us keep on keeping on ~ celebrating community and serving with our Community Building, Soup Cafe and Good Neighbor Fund. If you are someone who has delighted in the pleasures of this annual community event, we invite you to please consider making a donation this year. Be a Berry Booster! 


As a small token of our appreciation, everyone who donates any amount will be emailed a pdf of our Strawberry Festival Recipe Book.



Please print out and include the following form (it's attached) and/or information when you send in your check. Thank you!
