The Ladies Aid Strawberry Festival was a huge success this year. Eager customers streamed through the doors of the 3rd Congregational Church to either eat in or take away delicious strawberry shortcake. About 40 minutes before the scheduled ending, Bob and Lisa Santangelo took the very last shortcake, made with some broken biscuits and nearly the last of the whipped cream.
The Ladies Aid has been holding the festival in Westfield for a hundred years. This year the ladies made 1450 biscuits, and topped them with 800 quarts of strawberries and 35 gallons of freshly whipped heavy cream. They made a lot of people very happy.
