It’s almost here!



One of the most unique and well-watched contests during the annual Apple Butter Festival is the turtle race. Kids are particularly dedicated to the event, which can be surprisingly fast-paced. In this festival photo from a few years back, a young entrant coaxed her reptile toward the finish line while spectators cheered it on, too, under the watchful eye of firefighter and referee Robert Madison. If you have a “Photo of the Week” – from a turtle run to an antique gun -- why not lend it to The Morgan Messenger?
