    A festival well done

    This past White Mills Days saw a lot of reasons for our community to celebrate the spirit of a community even as the weather threatened to wash away our festival. It was a comman site to see men and women bringing in hundreds of pies and cakes carefully protecting them from the elements.

    Or sometimes their eyes dart this way and that, like those of a trapped animal searching for an escape route.
