The Town of LaSalle is gearing up for the annual Strawberry Festival, and is asking for some help.

Volunteers are needed to help clean strawberries on Wednesday, June 5 at 6 p.m. at the Event Centre at 970 Front Rd.

The festival takes place from Thursday, June 6 to Sunday, June 9 at the Vollmer Recreation Complex.

Advance registration is not required for the strawberry cleaners. Organizers say an hour or two of time would be greatly appreciated. High school volunteer forms can be signed for these community service hours.

Parking is available at the Event Centre by entering the parking lot from Bouffard Road. For more information email events@lasalle.ca.
