The TAUNY Center, 53 Main St., Canton, held its Sugar & Spice gingerbread contest Friday. The judges gave top honors to the Hammond 4-H and FFA Fair by the children of the Pierce family of Heuvelton: Reggie (18), Connor (16), Reilly (15), Carter (13), Maureen (9), Meaghan (8), Michael (5). About their entry the Pierces explain:"Our family loves the fair! We go every year with our sheep and 4-H projects. It is a true country fair, with good food, good people, and lots of old-fashioned fun. Dedicated volunteers from the North Country put in lots of good work to make the fair possible and keep the tradition going." The display continues until Dec. 23, when the People's Choice award will be given. For the full story, click here.
