Strawberry Festival benefits Quaker Meeting House restoration

The annual Strawberry Festival, presented by the Winona Area Historical Society, attracted a fine turnout Sunday. Those attending were able to dine, listen to entertainment and bid on auction items with proceeds benefiting the 1838 Quaker Meeting House Restoration Project. A community church service was held along with an antique car show, an antique display and craft demonstrations. Shown in one photo, sisters, from left, Mary, 3, Jenna, 7, and Ellie Marhefa, 11, from Winona admire a July 4th-patriotic themed basket that was up for auction. The siblings are daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Duane Marhefka. In the other photo, Leanna Hartsough, a singer and dancer, was among entertainers performing during the festival. She is a 2011 Canfield High School graduate now attending Youngstown State University. She is majoring in physical education and international business and is a high jumper on the Penguins’ track team. She is also a Zumba and yoga instructor. Among those enjoying her performance was her grandmother, Lynne Hartsough of Winona.
