TURBOTVILLE — Two-hundred-fifty quarts of fresh strawberries will be hauled, cleaned and sliced as the central ingredient for the homemade ice cream and treats at the Warrior Run-Fort Freeland Heritage Society’s annual Strawberry Festival, to be held Sunday, June 12, at Historic Warrior Run Church, 41 Warrior Lane, located at the intersection of Susquehanna Trail and Eighth Street Drive near Turbotville.

After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, members of the heritage society are excited to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the festival with a barbecue, an assortment of strawberry-topped deserts, and famous hand-churned ice cream, while members of the community enjoy a relaxing afternoon of fun and socialization in the church grove.
