  3. I am an Activity/Recreation Director and loved the punch for my folks–all natural, different–yet we all love strawberries, they invoke so many happy feelings and memories. I love this and this is Punch!

    I also wanted to add that we did a “Strawberry Days” Theme: cake, punch, fruit, shared our favorite recipes and for the elder folk, or young alike, we can all come up with some good SB recipes.

    Love this site too!
