'Great Pumpkin Drop'The Marysville Fire Department's first "Great Pumpkin Drop" on Nov. 1 raised more than $800 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, according to Mayor John Gore. The drop was held at the Decker 271 Fire Station on County Home Road. People paid to have firefighters take their pumpkin to the top of the ladder and be dropped. (Top) Lt.
