Strawberry Fest cancelled but berries distributed to those in need

When the pandemic hit in March, St. John's made the hard decision to cancel their annual June Strawberry Fest.  Not wanting to cancel the order that had already been placed with a local farmer, the vestry voted to keep the order for Coulter's Farm, and distribute the berries through the Care-N-Share food pantry instead.  Dave Coulter delivered the berries to the food pantry, parishioners helped to bag them up, and stayed to help with the overall food distribution that day.
