DUMMERSTON Strawberry Shortcake Take-Out Fundraiser: For over 50 years, Dummerston Congregational Church has served up a scrumptious dinner with huge strawberry shortcakes at the Grange Hall across the street on the last Saturday in June. This year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers realized that a "normal" dinner was unfeasible, and the idea of serving only a dessert fundraiser was raised. So now, individual biscuits with lots of local strawberries and real whipped cream will be available as well as the old fashioned 10" shortcake which serves eight. 4 - 6 p.m. $7 for an individual serving, $45 for the full 8-piece shortcake. Dummerston Center Grange and Church, 1008 East-West Rd. Questions or to pre-order: 802-257-0544.
