“This was a great event that we hope will become a regular part of the Abington community calendar,” said Abington News co-founder Rick Collins. “Big thanks to our partner, Webster Timber Lanes, for helping coordinate a fun afternoon. And we’re very appreciative of Abington Cable Access & Media’s support as well. ”

Washburn won a trophy, and a basket full of Thanksgiving dinner goodies, as well as a $25 gift certificate to Trucchis for a Turkey Day turkey.
