Blueberry Festival scheduled for Aug. 11

Holy Cross Lutheran Church will host its 11th annual Blueberry Festival, Aug. 11 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the church on the corner of Lord and Storer streets in Kennebunk.

The event is held each year to raise funds for a good cause.

Quilted items, bags, aprons and other hand-crafted items will be for sale at the festival. The church will also offer homemade doughnuts, blueberry pies, cookies and other treats for sale.

Blueberry shortcake topped with fresh whipped cream, the festival’s namesake dessert, will also be available.

All proceeds from the festival will benefit the In- A-Pinch Non-Food Pantry located in Biddeford. The pantry provides personal care/cleaning supplies to families without means to purchase them.

Crafters for a Cause — comprised of Holy Cross Lutheran’s social concerns committee and other members of the congregation — work all year to create crafts for sale at the festival.

Each year the social concerns committee reviews community needs to select the recipient of Blueberry Festival proceeds.
