THE 74th ANNUAL LAUREL FESTIVAL
Today on Wellsboro Home Page we recap this past Saturday’s Laurel Festival events. We would be remiss not to take a moment here to thank our Wellsboro Area Chamber of Commerce. Thanks to Executive Director Julie VanNess, Chamber President Marsha Chesko, Chamber Events Coordinator Lauren Morral and all the Chamber staff for the huge amount of time and dedication it takes to host this special event.

Then at 2:00 PM Saturday afternoon the Pennsylvania State Laurel Festival Parade took place on Main Street in Wellsboro. That’s where our Wellsboro Home Page video coverage begins today followed by the Coronation of the 2015 Pennsylvania State Laurel Queen.

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE QUEEN
The Pennsylvania State Laurel Pageant has been a Laurel Festival tradition since the festival’s initiation in 1938. Since that time, seventy-four beautiful young ladies have been crowned the Laurel Queen. This week, Wellsboro Home Page had the privilege of speaking with one former “royal” who won the pageant in 1965.

“‘I am just so ordinary, looking around here, they all have beautiful clothes on and I am just me,’” Jean Ritchie remembers remarking when she first arrived in Wellsboro in 1965. She was surrounded by sixty-some other beautiful candidates, who she viewed as much more likely to win than herself. Yet for an ordinary woman, Ritchie has lead an extraordinary life!

DECORATING DECODED – LANDSCAPING
Today, Decorating Decoded goes to Martin’s Garden Center located in Middlebury Center to talk about the importance of landscaping. Good landscape design is more than just planting some flowers along the front of the house. It actually accounts for up to 20% of your home’s value and done right….your garden will even have visual interest in the dead of winter.
Many of the same design principles that you use to decorate a room can also be applied to designing your landscape. Consider how you want the space to function, create a focal point and think about texture, color and continuity in the design.

TAKE TO THE SKIES AT AVIATION CAMP
Today on Wellsboro Home Page we pay a visit to the Wellsboro Johnston Airport to gather information on their Aviation Camp. Flight Instructor and Airport Manager Craig Musser stated that the airport began this program because it was looking for a way to get young people involved in aviation. The camp gives high school age students the opportunity to take to the skies and learn about the field of aviation. This June’s Aviation Camp had students attending from Wellsboro, Liberty, Coudersport, Galeton.
If you are interested in attending Aviation Camp or if you would like information on how your organization can co-sponsor a camp, please call the Wellsboro Johnston Airport at (570)-724-3746.

BACK TO BASICS – TREASURE IN A FIELD
Back to Basics is designed to encourage and support our Home Page viewers with a timely word or illustration that helps us to think about and evaluate our lives from an eternal perspective. Today’s broadcast has the potential to actually change your life, for the good, forever.

This month’s message is being presented by Associate Pastor Michael White of the Wellsboro Bible Church. We hope today’s feature will help you focus on what’s truly valuable and important in life. Mike gives us several illustrations that help put things in perspective and shares with us a couple of stories to help us to reflect on what’s truly valuable. He also tells us about a man who found this amazing treasure in a field and what he did to claim it.
