STRAWBERRY CLEANING: This coming Wed., Aug. 24th, we will begin cleaning strawberries for a booth at the State Fair. Cleaning will begin at 8am, each day through Sun. Sept. 4th. The owners expect to have twice the number of berries as they did last year. Come as often as you are able. Whether 1 day or the entire 12 days! The socialization is great and makes the time fly by, while earning money for our parish! Workers are also welcomed to take home any berries that do not meet the standards of the booth! We look forward to seeing you Wednesday morning at 8am!
DISHWASHER: A volunteer is needed to help wash the tubs, strainers, cutting boards & tools needed for cleaning strawberries. Washing will begin at 7am each of the 12 days that strawberries are cleaned. Training will be given for operating the dishwasher.

An answering machine will be helpful. If willing to volunteer, please contact Mary Leibl at
