The winners of the Youngsters of Yore Sesquicentennial Photo Contest were announced on Thursday, January 18, at the regular weekly meeting of the group.
Accepting the first prize on behalf of her husband Graeme Allan was his wife Moyra. Second prize was awarded to Ivan Russell; third prize recipient was Bill Kilfoyle ( his sister Jean accepted the award.)
The theme for the contest, coordinated by George Gouthro, was North Grenville Celebrates Canada’s 150th Anniversary. Judge for the competition was David Roberts of Ottawa, a renowned photographer. Participation was restricted to the residents of North Grenville.
Youngsters of Yore, one of the most popular programs at the North Grenville Public Library, became a reality a few years ago, the brainchild of Jean Kilfoyle and Fran Thompson, Friends of the Library. The focus is on adults, especially seniors.
