The weather for the last Farmers Market of the season was perfect, warm with a nice breeze, and everyone was all smiles as shoppers thanked volunteers and wished everyone well until the market reopens next year.

Bob Galbraith kept everyone updated about the market and also kept everyone upbeat with his gift of song.

The Chili Contest was judged by a team of firefighters — the best judges ever of chili. The winner of the contest was Lora Constantine, who won a $100 TD gift card. The second-place winner was Eve Becker and the third-place winner was Steve Fromm. Afterward, samples were sold and $46 was raised for the Marine Mammal Stranding Center.

Mike King won the Guess the Number of Beans Contest. There were 91 entries with 4,611 beans in the jar and Mike guessed 4515. Great job Mike!

Children truly enjoyed themselves on the Let’s Go Fitness Circuit. They also danced to Bob Galbraith’s songs. So fun to see children enjoying themselves!

Volunteers Winnie Galbraith and Barbara Corcoran from the St. Thomas Women’s Club conveyed the many spiritual and engaging activities that they share throughout the year. Some lucky person won two tickets to the upcoming Fashion Show.
