VALE – Kindergarteners jumped around in Recla’s Pumpkin Patch on Monday, Oct. 21, as they searched for the perfect Fall ornament to display this season.

Recla’s Pumpkin Patch, just off highway 20 west of Vale, had plenty to choose from, and the kindergarteners hardly put a dent in the bountiful selection.
