The program for the year will be our annual Strawberry Festival, featuring hand-picked strawberries, homemade whipped cream and cookies. The cost of the shortcake is $5. It will be served outside the Bell Hill Meetinghouse, at the top of Bell Hill Road in Otisfield.

A landmark of Otisfield since 1839, the meeting place has functioned as both a community center and a church. The building is now owned by the Bell Hill Meetinghouse Association, a group dedicated to historic preservation. Designed by local architect Nathan Nutting, Jr., it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

In addition to enjoying the shortcake, you are invited to explore the interior of the church, where Maine artist Steven Philbrook will display some of his watercolors. Steve’s passion for wildlife and fly fishing is demonstrated in many of his fishing scenes and landscapes. He framed all of his paintings in old barn boards and other weathered wood. These paintings will be available for purchase. Steve and his wife will be present at the exhibition on July 10 from 4 to 6 p.m. Learn more about Steve and his painting by visiting his website at stevephilbrook.com.
