Outside of the office, Dawn loves to travel, shop, and garden. Her real passion was growing giant pumpkins with her husband, Bill. Her dedication and attention to detail shines in the pumpkin patch as countless hours is spent burying vines and watering. The biggest pumpkin we grew was 1813 pounds in 2013 and it is still holding the Maritime Record. With that weight, Dawn and Bill were recognized as one of the top three growers in the world for that season. It then qualified them for a trip of a lifetime to New York City where they displayed their pumpkin at Grand Central Station. It was carved and on display at the New York Botanical Gardens.
