On June 25th the Hawthorne Community association held its annual Strawberry festival at the newly reconstituted Hawthorne House. The evening began at 6 PM with a most delightful and insightful presentation on “Loon Lesson” given by the well known authority on this subject Dr. Jim Paruk.
His presentation on the migratory and particular habits of the Loon were most enlightening and the 45 minute lecture was followed by a lively question and answer session.
After this presentation the audience of some 50 members and guests were treated to our traditional strawberries with biscuits and whipped cream, all home made (except the strawberries). Thanks to those board members who helped to make this a truly fun, informative and festive evening.
