Backus Legion, Auxiliary schedule kids and adult Halloween parties

Posted: October 15, 2013 - 5:30pm
Tony Mertens and Barb Frederick of Backus, who annually grow the "Great Pumpkin" for the Backus Legion's weight guessing contest, are shown with this year's selection in their garden. The "Great Pumpkin" is an annual feature of the cartoon Peanuts in which Linus anxiously waits in the pumpkin patch for the great one's appearance. Although usually orange, this year's version was an albino. Submitted Photo
