No pumpkin sale this year

Another local tradition is going by the wayside this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Knights of Columbus chapter from Holy Cross Catholic Church in Paris has annually hosted a pumpkin sale during October leading up to Halloween.

The sale typically was set up in front of Medical Center Pharmacy on Tyson Avenue. 

However, because of the pandemic, the sale had to be canceled this year, according to Knight Tom Westling.
