Thousands attend Watermelon Day

Delightfully cool temperatures and a clear, sunny sky brought thousands to Stanhope Saturday to celebrate the 59th annual Watermelon Day. Headquarters for the event was the town park, where there were plenty of kiddie activities, good food, a slow-pitch softball tournament, Bingo games, plenty of time to visit with old and new friends, and, of course, free ice-cold watermelon to enjoy.
