Pam Plumb, One of the Three Judges of the Carving Contest at Maine Craft Association.

Lydia Mather was chosen as the Winner of the First Annual Pumpkin Carving contest at the Maine Craft Association, 521 Congress Street.  She will receive a $100.00 gift certificate to spend at the Craft Association.  She was one of eleven (11) entries in the contest.

There were three independent judges for the contest.  One was Pam Plumb who works at the Mechanic’s Hall building in which the Association is located.  “It was just so ?  and unusual.  The artistry is remarkable.  They are all amazing,” said Plumb.  ( Please. see below right photo of Plumb).

The other two judges were Tom and Karolyn – also from Mechanic’s Hall.

Because of the unanticipated deterioration  of the carved pumpkins, they will be on exhibit in the window at the Association only through today.
