Our patrons had a difficult time voting for their favorites in each of the different categories. We had so many entries in the age 12 & under category (and no entries in the age 13-18 age category), that we awarded an extra prize in the age 12 & under category.
Prize winners may stop by our front desk and pick up their prizes. Thank-you to everyone who participated!🤩
