ALBION – The Albion Department of Public Works put up banners this morning for next week’s Strawberry Festival. The top photo shows DPW workers Ron Ricker, right, and Jay Pahura putting up a banner on Main Street by the Episcopal Church. (The Pullman Memorial Universalist Church is in background.)

The DPW also put up several Christmas and Santa themed banners because the Strawberry Festival on June 9-10 has a theme in honor of Charles W. Howard, the Albion man who started a Santa Claus School and Christmas Park. Howard is considered the dean of Santas. A Santa school in Michigan continues in his name.
