FLOW Strawberry Festival Update
The Friends of the Library of Windham’s Strawberry Festival and Book Fair has been a part of the community for 36 years. It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel the 2020 Strawberry Festival. After consulting with our board, the library staff, and town safety officials, we've decided holding a gathering of this size in early June would not be a responsible decision.
We would like to thank the community for always supporting the festival and helping F.L.O.W. raise money for the Nesmith Library. We would also like to thank the many local businesses that have sponsored the festival or donated raffles and goods. The Friends are thinking of you during this difficult time and encourage the community to continue supporting these generous businesses. Last but not least, we would like to thank the hundreds of volunteers who have worked at the festival over the years. The reason the festival would have been in its 37th year is that the entire community comes together for a day of books, food, entertainment, and fun!
The Strawberry Festival committee and F.L.O.W. board are brainstorming ways to commemorate this special day and all it means to the community so be on the lookout for further announcements!
Stay safe and well, friends.
