Rose Tree Elementary School’s 58th Annual Strawberry Festival


Rose Tree Elementary School’s
58th Annual Strawberry Festival
May 21st
from 3-7pm

Strawberry Festival fundraiser on Saturday, May 21 from 3 – 7pm (rain or shine) at Rose
Tree Elementary School, located at 1101 First Avenue in Media. A celebration of family and
community spirit, the Strawberry Festival is a fun-filled afternoon of affordable games for kids of
all ages, prizes, live music, delicious picnic-themed foods and strawberry-themed desserts and
baked goods.

In addition to games including Minute to Win It, Angry Birds and Break the Plate, families can
pan for semi-precious gems in a real water-operated Gem Mining sluice built and donated by
Media-based carpenter, Michael R. Rhile. Rose Tree Fire Company will also be on-hand to give
kids the firefighter experience by letting them try on firefighting gear and target shooting with a
real fire hose. There will also be a Home Run Derby, a silent auction with prizes donated by local
businesses, and a Bake Off competition where local residents will showcase their best strawberry
creations for a chance to win the Silver Pie Pan prize.

Sponsored by the Rose Tree Elementary Parent Teacher Group (PTG) and area businesses, proceeds from the Strawberry Festival enable the PTG to provide important funding for the school’s library resources, computer technology, classroom trips, assemblies and much more.
