I have a thing with strawberries. Sweet little fruit, they’ve been teaching me how to reframe what’s “urgent” for the last few years. Strawberries in season? Drop everything! Get picking! Make jam! Fill freezer! Don’t procrastinate!
And who can resist a community event with the tagline: Eat Your Dessert Before Your Dinner.
The Pemberton Women’s Institute support a whole host of community groups with the proceeds of their events and fundraisers: Pearl’s Safe House, Pemberton Food Bank, Pemberton Secondary School bursary program, BC Children’s Hospital, Pemberton Health Care Foundation, BC Women’s Hospital, Covenant House, Salvation Army, Pemberton Library, Pemberton Museum, Pemberton Legion are just some of our annual recipients.
Last year, the WI superstars baked and sold 194 strawberry shortcakes.
This year, the annual event takes place Tuesday, June 24, from 2pm to 4pm, at the Museum.
