STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL - There was something for everyone at Laurel's annual Strawberry Festival last Saturday. The Davis family, Bob, Jean and Rebecca hosted a children's craft and activities area on the lawn at St. Philips Church. Jean is shown with Kara Fleming, who proudly showed off her potted plant craft. Participants of all ages enjoyed the crafts, games, prizes and of course the main feature, fresh strawberries from The Hen House on Sycamore Road in Laurel. More Strawberry Festival snapshots on pages 12 and 13.
