Pomfret's Annual Strawberry Dinner



On a beautiful Summer Saturday evening, the North Pomfret Congregational Church hosted its annual Strawberry Supper. The group has been holding these suppers for at least 70 years and some say as long as 90 years (the North Pomfret Ladies Circle plans to research the events history this winter using old diaries and possibly the Vermont Standard.) Three seating times allow the 300 plus community members, friends and vacationers to enjoy a family style volunteer baked dinner of ham, potato salad, baked beans, dinner rolls, deviled eggs and of course Strawberry Shortcake. One of the volunteers and her husband spent all day Friday baking 500 strawberry shortcake biscuits.

In addition to the dinner the Ladies Circle holds a bake sale, a crafts sale and a raffle for the Circle’s hand made quilt—winner to be announced at the Fall Harvest Supper.
