On Family Day the prizes for the winning entries in our Family/Heritage Day competition were distributed to the winners as part of a day of activities in the town. Congratulations to Gabe Cook, Jeremy Martin, Leah Hill, Hannah Brinklow, Erica Fox and Levi Van Vlack for their achievements.

Winning entries

Thanks again for everyone who put so much hard work into this, particularly to The Rev. Canon Cyril Betts, a member of the Deseronto Archives Board, who came up with the idea in the first place and who announced the prize winners at yesterday’s event. Thanks are also due to Mr Launderville, the Principal of Deseronto Public School, for his enthusiastic support for the competition and to Noni McMeeken, Paul Robertson and Councillor Edgar Tumak, members of the Archives Board who were all highly instrumental in its organisation.

Well done to all the children who put so much effort into their projects. All the entries will be on display in Deseronto Public Library for the remainder of this week; they are well worth a closer look!
