      Strawberry Social a sweet success

      Strawberries were abundant at the Emanuel Lutheran Church in Skandia.

      Church members held their annual Strawberry Social Thursday evening.

      It's one of their biggest fundraisers of the year.

      The social has been going on for over fifty years now.

      Church members make homemade angel food cake topped with strawberries from Ostanek's Strawberry Farm.

      Dozens of community members were on hand.

      "It's a good time to meet up with people you haven't seen in a while in the community. They come from Marquette, we have them come from Trenary," said Mary Lou Behrens, Outreach Committee Member.

      Part of the proceeds go to the food bank at Nifty Thrifty, a thrift store and food pantry in Eben.
