Today's fun local event is the Relay for Life at Johnson Williams Middle School!
My daughter joined The Ladybuggers' team as a kindergartener, and gets more excited about it each year. The amazing this about this annual event is how our comparatively small community manages to raise so much money while having a terrific good time. Over a decade of dedication from such admirable individuals as Loretta Stem, Jenny Kronfeld and Kitty Henry make this annual event a mainstay of Berryville's community-mindedness. If you haven't had some contact with Clarke County Relay for Life, then you just haven't been here long enough yet -- we will get to you!
