A cold Williams Station Day (with photo gallery)

By   /   November 1, 2012  /   Comments Off on A cold Williams Station Day (with photo gallery)

There are some things I always do at Williams Station Day.

I always go to the opening ceremonies and take pictures of Scouts and veterans.

I always head for Deborah Landis’ booth and buy at least two whoopee pies.

I always buy Southern Kettle Korn from the Glasscocks who come over from Clanton every year.

I always look at the art and arts and crafts.

And I always enjoy seeing folks and taking tons of pictures.

What I – nor anyone else – knew this year was that the temperatures would hover in the 40s and 50s and that the wind would blow all day long. I froze. Everybody froze. Except for a few – a very few – folks who were in short pants and short sleeve shirts, the rest of us were bundled up.

I think the cold may have kept some folks at home. The crowd didn’t seem quite as large. But still it was a good day.

The Great Pumpkin Contest was good as always. This year’s winners in each category were as follows:

K-second grade: first place – owner of the sailor pumpkin (did not have a name on the entry); second place – Lily Sullivan; third place – Katelyn Harrison; honorable mention – Cooper Harrison, Alanjah Scott

Third and fourth grade: first place – Ethan Matthew; second place – Anna Sullivan

Fifth and sixth grade: first place – Matte Locke; second place – Madison Hammonds; third place – Lanaiya Phillips; honorable mention – Janelle Phillips

Seventh grade to adult: first place – James Sullivan; second place – Mary Sullivan; third place tie – Travon Phillips, Christian Scott
