Congratulations to our Pumpkin Roller World Champions for 2022! The Pumpkin Roll shirts sold out quickly. The shirts featured a pumpkin wearing a top hat in homage to Mr. Lee Shearer, who passed away in July 2022. Lee was known for wearing a top hat when he announced the names of all the contestants as the host of the Pumpkin Roll. He has contributed to the Pumpkin Roll for many years of service. The Community Club would like to thank Tracy Greisner, Rick Feichter, Will Haskell-Kelly and the entire crew who helped put on the Pumpkin Roll.
