HAGERSTOWN -- To be clear, it's not a Renaissance fair. It's an educational experience. The Society for Creative Anachronism's Barony of Highland Foorde held its annual public gathering in Hagerstown Saturday on the grounds of the Jonathan Hager House. Although the event features tunics, surcoats and minstrels by the dozens, it differs from Renaissance fairs in that many of its participants have spent years researching their craft or skill. "It's not about entertaining, it's about educating," said Sherri Fabic, who helped put on this year's event.

When Edward Walter Ryan III was a boy, he wanted to make wood fly. He was jealous of his brother's skill at building balsa airplanes. He followed the directions, but his models didn't soar. "I would be real exact and it wouldn't do a thing," he said. Ryan now works with a different plane - and router, lathe and chisels. Those early attempts at making models inspired the 52-year-old Waynesboro, Pa., resident made carving a lifelong craft. His hobby has history. Ryan has tools that belonged to his great-great-grandfather, George Lever.

Making friends After a cool bath, Tracy Forsythe's cow Anoika was ready to socialize. While Tracy walked Anoika back from the washing area, where several cows were getting their final scrub downs before competition at the Washington County Ag Expo & Fair, Anoika jerked her head repeatedly at a row of cows to the left. "She's calm; I've never had any problems from her," Tracy said as she stroked Anoika's head to divert her attention. Tracy, 16, said she has been coming to the Ag Expo since she was 4. She said she likes the competition, but most enjoys the event as an opportunity to get together with people.
