The 5th Annual Strawberry Social


stawberry socialThe Ladies Auxiliary, Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 25, hosted their 5th annual strawberry social on Sunday, June 12th, 2016 at The Legion.

Jean Snell, Convenor, spoke with saultonline, “We really enjoy putting on this fundraising event. It gets us all in the mood for summertime.”

A solid turn-out of folks who appreciate homemade shortcake, topped  with fresh strawberries, ice cream and whipped cream couldn’t agree more. The strawberries were positively bursting with flavour.

Dora and Ken Hocken made it out to the Strawberry Social. Ken is a member of Branch 25, Royal Canadian Legion and was recently honoured (2014) with the rank of Knight of the French National Order of the Legion of Honour.  He was part of the Allied Forces who liberated France during the Second World War. Hocken was a member of Sherbrooke Fusilier Regiment, Canadian 2nd Armoured Division.
