After a two-year hiatus, the community of Pine-Strawberry roared back to life with our first festival of the year.

Visitors and residents turned up in droves to wander the aisles and ogle the goodies at the craft festival held at the Community Center in scenic downtown Pine this past weekend. The Boy Scouts were on hand to open the event with the posting of the colors and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at 7 a.m. Saturday. The Mountain Village Foundation (MVF) served up pancakes and sausages both mornings with the Scouts serving as bussers, keeping the area neat. The pancakes were cooked and flipped just right by an amazing team of volunteers. According to initial reports, this was one of the best festivals ever for this dedicated team. All the funds raised by MVF at these pancake breakfasts go right back into the community through their charitable works like the Christmas toy drive.
