I have lived in laurens county all my life and although one may think it is a small town/community i always feel the same way each time i am away to long. "Theres no place like home" there is a certain feeling of love and compassion in laurens county and also roots as far back as i can remember. I can still smell and taste my Great Grandmother mattie maes' Pineapple cake! Magnificent!!!!!
