Our View: Thumbs up to ‘Pick of the Patch’
Thumbs up: To Max Law, the Southeast Elementary School student whose pumpkin won top honors at the Sycamore Pumpkin Festival. Law’s creation – a pumpkin equipped with wheels and decorated with props highlighting historic U.S. Route 66 – was dubbed the “Pick of the Patch” on Thursday. It is among more than 1,000 pumpkins sprawling across the DeKalb County Courthouse lawn in yet another outpouring of local creativity. We applaud Max for his ingenuity and the Sycamore Lions Club for keeping this wonderful tradition alive for yet another year. The Pumpkin Festival truly is Sycamore’s hallmark event, embodying the best of small-town charm and generosity.
