LAST WEEK’S WINNERS: QUIZ + CAPTION CONTEST
First of all, we have a little caption contest to take care of!
We asked folks to take their best shot at a funny caption on this Valley News photo by Geoff Hansen of a bear stuck in a tree during the Prouty.
And the winner is …
“In a tree, no one knows you’re a bear.”
Congratulations to GRIFFIN SHUMWAY! You get an extra two points on your final score.
