The Brick Church has held the Strawberry Festival every summer starting in 1940.  The undated cover photo (courtesy of Ron Grover) shows Winona (Squier) Gilman on the left and Rachel (Harrington) Spencer (1912 - 1998) to the right.  Rachel was distantly related to Judge Theophilus Harrington.  Her g.g.grandfather Stephen Harrington (1768 - 1852) was 3rd cousin to Judge Harrington. 

The newspaper clippings below are all materials from Flora Weeks.

The 1st two are from the 1956 and 1960 festivals.  Mrs. Robert Pratt in the 1956 photo is Eloise (Weeks) Pratt.  Mrs. Clyde Ackley in the 1960 photo is Guila Adella (St. John) Ackley (1904 - 2001).

The two that follow that are from a single clipping from 1988 but with a photo from 1949.  The 1988 photo is of Gladys E. (McKinney) Congdon (1918 - 2016).  The women in the 1949 photo have not been identified.

The 1983 festival garnered a full page in the Rutland Herald which has been broken up into two pdf's here and here.
