Armstrong Dental hosts pumpkin contest - By Michelle Libby

From a teeth brushing Dracula to a minion, Dr. Stanley D. Armstrong, a dentist at 744 Roosevelt Trail has been celebrating Halloween by having his staff create one of a kind pumpkin sculptures for nine years. For the past week, clients, guests and visitors have been voting in the office for their favorite pumpkin creation. This year, the office upped the stakes by hosting the contest online through Facebook as well.
“Some people make sure their recall appointment falls on the pumpkin week,” said office manager Robbyn Mooradian.

The pumpkins were brought into the office last Friday while the office was closed. Each person snuck the creation in so no one would know whose was whose.
“We’re a competitive bunch,” said hygienist Brandy Stubbs. 
At press time, one day before the final votes are to be tallied, Linus from “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” was in first place in the office and online.

            The winning creation creator will receive a gift certificate, according to Mooradian. For those who voted, there will be two random drawings for the two contests with a dozen whoopie pies from Molly’s Cupcakes on the line for the winners.
