Mayberry Day

The folks of Mayberry got together Saturday, May 2, at Express Lane in Lanark, to benefit the "Jake Thomas Eagle Scout Project" FUNdraiser. Jake's Eagle Scout project will improve the Veterans Memorial Wall at the Lanark Cemetery.

See theexclusive video of this FUNdraiser below. It's not a re-run! (PA photos and video/Tom Kocal)
