Elijah Iles House volunteers host Clara Irwin’s Strawberry Party Friday, July 1. In addition to strawberry shortcake, sundaes and daiquiris, other food available for purchase includes hot dogs, bratwurst and side dishes. Tour the house and garden, hear period music by Thistle and Thyme, listen to a storyteller and play 1800s children’s games.
