Mayor Craig A. Moe is pleased to announce that the City of Laurel was honored to receive the first place prize for Emergency Responder in the May 12, 2012 Main Street Festival parade. The prize was presented to the City by the Laurel Board of Trade for the participation of Sparky the Fire Dog and Sniffy the Smoke Alarm mascots in the parade.
