On behalf of the Stanardsville United Methodist Church Strawberry Festival Committee, we would like to thank the community and surrounding counties who continue to support our annual festival. The weather was perfect and contributed to everyone having a wonderful day. Thank you to the entertainers who share their time and talents. We appreciate their commitment to come out and perform for the community.
We would also like to recognize our local sponsors: Creative Press, Greene County Schools, Performance Signs, Stanardsville Fire Company, United Bank in Stanardsville and Walmart in Ruckersville. Thank you to the Greene County Sherriff’s Office and Rescue Squad for their participation and support. A special thank you to Ben Early with Alto Hartley Inc. in Alexandria, who donated all the jars used to make jam. To the participants and sponsors in the 5K Run and the vendors and crafters who came out—we thank you.
We would also like to thank the William Monroe football and soccer team members for helping this year. These young men were a tremendous help lifting, carrying and providing much of physical help during the festival and all the days leading up to the event. We greatly appreciated their support.
And last, but not least, we would like to thank all the members and congregation of our church who have contributed time, ideas, hard work and support. Without each and every one of you, this festival would not be possible. This group of people is truly amazing and they continue to impress me year after year.
We are happy to report that due to the large community turnout we will be able to support our local missions in a meaningful way and add to our church’s capital campaign fund.
