Lusciously sweet, red, ripe strawberries will be the highlight of Community United Methodist Church's Strawberry Festival from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. tomorrow at the church, 8680 Fort Smallwood Road. But berries aren't the only reason to stop by this annual community event.

Visitors can shop for crafts, find treasures at the white elephant table, or purchase handmade needle arts items at the fancy table.

In the food department, there will be crab cakes, chicken, hot dogs, an assortment of homemade salads, handmade candies and cakes and, of course, fresh local strawberries, served with cake and ice cream.

For the kids, there will be pony rides and games with prizes.

Live entertainment, featuring the Pasadena Kadettes, the George Fox Middle School "Foxy Ladies" and the Twirlers Square Dancers, is scheduled.

The Children's Choir of Lake Shore Baptist Church will present the musical "The Greatest Show on Heaven and Earth," at 4 p.m. Sunday at the church, 4613 Mountain Road.

Written by Dennis and Nan Allen, the musical has great appeal to youngsters of all ages with its circus theme, said Nancy Brewer, children's choir director.

The circus atmosphere will continue after the performance with games, a moon bounce, hot dogs, popcorn, snow cones, light refreshments, balloons and face painting.

The event is open to the community.

Bridal fashions, old and new, will be the focus of the vintage wedding feast and fashion show at 7 p.m. June 18 at Community United Methodist Church.

Proceeds will be used to purchase handbells for the newly formed handbell choir.

Gowns, both handmade and purchased, will be modeled. The event will showcase a wedding gown from 1885, said Jean Tate, event spokeswoman.

"We originally asked for gowns from the 20th century, but when this gown surfaced, we expanded the time theme to include any age gown," she said.

Gowns and wedding outfits from the early 1920s through the 1950s will be featured.

Local actress Pat Quasney will be the master of ceremonies.

Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for children 10 and under. A light supper, refreshments and a slice of wedding cake is included.

Congratulations to Monsignor Raymond P. Kelly Council 10966 of the Knights of Columbus and its auxiliary on receiving two first-place awards at the organization's 96th state convention in Ocean City last month.

"We would like to thank the community for its support of our Tootsie Roll campaign," said Len Switala, council spokesman. "Through their generosity more than $3,000 was distributed to Glen Haven and Respite Care to benefit retarded children."
