Algoma Township resident Lynn Drown may have grown Charlie Brown’s great pumpkin!
According to her co-worker, Mary Stockreef, Lynn is an avid gardener and member of the Cedar Springs Garden Club. She and her husband, Scott, competed this year in the Central Great Lakes Pumpkin Weigh-off. Her largest pumpkin weighed in at 517 pounds, and Scott’s weighed in at 484 pounds! Lynn took 3rd place in her class for new growers, 15th overall, and also won for the best looking pumpkin. Scott took 17th place with his pumpkin.
“She dedicates most of her time outside of work with her family and tending to her garden growing large pumpkins like the one above, which was one of her smaller pumpkins, weighing in at 484 pounds,” said Stockreef. “We are very proud of our coworker and pumpkin girl. Her pumpkins and watermelons definitely draw a crowd and are art in their own right!”
