There were a lot of people eating breakfast at the Odd Fellows Hall then browsing the craft fair where vendors were selling handmade items of all kinds. The rolling began with the young set on the tennis court and then moved to Main Street for the rest of the rollers. In the boy’s 0-5 years category, Tristan McCarthy placed the pumpkin closest to the line. For the girls 0-5, Jordyn Lewis landed her pumpkin ON the line. In the senior division, Gary Shook won for the men and Grace Glassey won for the women. Amy Wedegaertner won for the girls and Jackson Ault won for the boys.
