Reece Long, 4, is the overall winner of The Tribune’s online Virtual Costume Contest. Reece lives in Hamptonville with mom Melissa (pictured) and dad Damon Long. Mrs. Long said the picture of Reece in his Mario Bros. costume was taken at First Baptist Church of Elkin during its fall festival activities. Reece picks up a check for $175 courtesy of our title sponsor, Soyworx, and The Elkin Tribune. Melissa said they plan on using the money to help purchase a piano for Reece. Congratulations to Reece and thanks to Soyworx!
