TROY — The 2016 Troy Strawberry Festival has come and gone — but memories made will remain.

Approximately 70 non-profits benefitted from the annual festival held June 3-5, selling many kinds or foods and drinks — many of them around the strawberry theme.

Business manager Corie Scweser deemed the festival a success, with the non-profits more than recovering on Sunday from a bit of rain on Saturday.

Chairman Nathan Walters said he was honored to have served during the 40th anniversary year of the festival, saying his favorite part of the festival was bringing two of his loves — his love of barbershop singing and the festival — together for one theme “A Capella Berries.”
