The 30th annual Strawberry Social event was a real hit with all our guests today. Over 160 seniors and their care givers congregated at the Knights of Columbus hall in Oakville this afternoon where they partook of a special Strawberry shortcake. The added scoop of ice cream made it that much special especially on this warm afternoon.
 
The weather gods were with us and all the iced tea and lemonade we got as donations, went down easily on this hot Sunday afternoon. 

It was delightful see so many seniors hit the dance floor and dance away to tunes from days gone by. Tim Allan, our entertainer has entertained our guests for several years and with sing sheets in hand, many sang along. 
 
Our incoming Rotary president, Karen Milner welcomed our guests and our final speaker, the Mayor of Oakville, Rob Burton welcomed our guests and handed them each a pin representing the town of Oakville. That was a nice touch.

Some of our guests won raffle prizes and, everyone went home with a goody bag with items donated by two fabulous corporate citizens - Shoppers Drugmart in Oakville Place and Husky Foods in Mississauga. Our cake was donated by Monastery Bakery and the lemonade and iced tea came from Fortino’s on Lakeshore. The beautiful flowers that our guests took home were a gift from Fortino’s on Dundas and our ice cream was donated by Metro on Rebecca. The raffle items were donated by Sobeys on Upper Middle Road and Maple Grove Mall. We handed out special cupcakes to those who celebrated a birthday in the past month and, we have to thank Cupid’s Cupcakes for their generous donation. Every year, all our corporate donors make our event that much special and for this we are truly grateful.
