Associated Orthopaedics in Kingsport continued a Halloween tradition for the 18th year on Thursday by hosting its annual employee pumpkin carving contest. Twenty carved and decorated pumpkins were on full display with entrants judged by employees and the patients who came through the doors. Employees Debbie Housewright and Jo Clark took a few minutes on Thursday to cast their votes for the winning pumpkins. First, second and third place winners were awarded with $100, $50 and $25 gift cards respectively, and each participating employee received some vacation time.
