Sava-A-Lot Watermelon Eating Contest
On Saturday, August 11, 2012 WVOW personality Dave Allen broadcast live from the Save-A-Lot in Holden for their Watermelon Eating Contest and Gospel Concert. Many people came out to enjoy the fun and festivities, free hot dogs, and the main event, the Watermelon Eating Contest. The winners were Ava Pritchard in the 5-7 year old category, Courtney Lester in the 8-10 year old category, Kaleb Pritchard in the 11-14 year old category, and Tony Williamson in the 15 and over category. Save-A-Lot District Manager, Mark Sykes, and Store Manager, Lee Hipshire, were on hand to award the prizes and keep the food and music flowing. WVOW's Howard Jemerison was on hand to be the official timer of the contestants. A good time was had by everyone that attended.
