Martha's Vineyard Skillet Toss - First Place!

Almost all the photos you see on Julie O'Connor's website are taken by Julie. But below is a photo of Julie by photographer Ralph Stewart that graced the front page of the Martha's Vineyard Times in this memorable August of 2017. It captures the moment when Julie threw a nearly 4 pound skillet 31ft, 5in, to win the 65+ division in the Women's Skillet Toss at the 156th Martha's Vineyard Agricultural Fair. It was a great moment of personal achievement for Julie who not only took home a blue ribbon and a trophy, but looked so good and exuberant throwing the skillet that the local newspaper thought she personified the spirit of the summer of 2017 in Martha's Vineyard, and put her on the front page!
