Dear Editor:

I would like to thank everyone involved with the Strawberry Festival for all of their hard work and dedication. I would also like to thank the members of the Montgomery County Historical Society for providing the financial support that continues to make Lane Place so beautiful and provides an incredible experience for those who tour our museum.

Many special thanks to: Ruth Johnson for working so diligently to make our grounds look wonderful; Davidson's Greenhouse and Pro Green for donating many beautiful plants so that Ruth can beautify our grounds; Ann Harvey, Assistant Director and Heather Kuzma, Curator- Collections Manager; and Dian Moore for organizing the volunteers.

The following MCHS members gave up their time to assist us with tours through Lane Place during the Strawberry Festival: Bob and Carol Bennett; Linda Brady; Ken and Sandy Brown; Delmas and Jean Chadwick; Janice Clauser; Ruth Evans; Monty and Sherry Harris; Shannon Hudson; Ruth Johnson; Rhonda Mitchell; Dwayne Rater; Don Thompson; Lora Craft Whiles.

Kudos to members of the Montgomery County Genealogy who pitched in at the last minute and helped with tours: Bud Arnold; Amy Hathaway; Judith Huddleston; Judy Kleine; Andrew McCorkel; Jerry Price; Scott Price; Lynn Scharft; and Steve Simms.

Again, thank you to everyone who made the Lane Place tours and the Strawberry Festival such a success.

Steve Frees
