WOW! The Shirley Strawberry Festival, was a huge success! Whitney Tompkins, really pulled off a great first event. I would say that there was well over 1,000 + people thru the event during what started out a dismal day. The entertainment was excellent, the Vendors were a very good selection, and they all said they did well at the festival, and would do it again. Maurice Lewman was very interesting, as was the police dog Huran's demonstration, thank you Mr. Lewman and Officer Brian, also Thanks to the Bell Family, the Kettle Creek Band,and Suburban East Band for A+ musical entertainment thru out thr day. To all who had a part you did a great job on the event. Looks like everyone can work together See Joan Cupps photo's at www.townofshirley.com
