In spite of the heat, West Springfield's Taste of the Valley 5K road race went on as planned Sunday from the Senior Center on Park Street. This is the 5th year and probably the hottest one for the race, but organizers, like Rotary member Jay Lefevre were pleased. He says, "It's not bad for the heat. It looks like I've been running the race and I've just been directing traffic. It's not a bad turnout, we're very happy."
The four day Taste of the Valley, presented by the Rotary Club and the town of West Springfield, wrapped up its 17th year Sunday night.
