  • Ruth Ann Hacking, executive director of the Cohase Chamber of Commerce, right, measures the length of an entry by siblings Elliott, 5, left, Casey, 9, middle, and Ainsley Kendsall, 12, right, of Ryegate, in the annual giant zucchini contest organized by the Wells River Action Program in Wells River, Vt., Saturday, Sept. 5, 2020. Their squash measured 29.5 inches along its curve and weighed in at 8.4 pounds. The contest, won by Andrea Franklin, of Newbury, with her 13.6 pound entry, was salvaged as a safe community activity from the canceled So Long Summer, Hello Fall festival. Organizers said that with 28 entries the contest had its highest participation in its nine year history. (Valley News - James M. Patterson) Copyright Valley News.
