RC of Southborough at Strawberry Festival 2.0
 

Southborough Rotary club members helped support the Southborough Library by volunteering at the Strawberry Festival organized & held by the Library at the end of June. In the 80’s, the Strawberry Festival was a popular town event, so the Library was keen to try and restart it – Festival 2.0! Club members helped serve strawberry shortcake & strawberries to the public. And since literacy is one of Rotary's key areas of focus, the club also decided to donate 2 raffle baskets of children’s books for the event. The children’s books were all on topics along Rotary ideals like: helping others, 1 person making a difference in the world, tolerance, resolution conflict, people working together for positive change. The Strawberry Festival also featured Coco's Tropical Ice, petting goats & veggie stamping for kids, as well as the big book sale inside the library. Over 200 people enjoyed the event and many said they hoped it would be held again next year. The club also produced the fun look back video which was given to the Library and Southborough Access Media after the event.
