While we haven’t had a lot of snow this Christmas season, we have had a lot of excitement generated for our twenty-something annual Christmas Coloring Contest sponsored once again by North West Kent Mechanical. And our doll sponsors, All About Heating & Cooling, Cedar Springs Rental, Little Caesars, Ray Winnie Auto Sales, Rockford Ambulance, Sparta Chevrolet, Sturgeon Collision, Inc. Hessel-Cheslek Funeral Home. Thanks guys. And gals!
Kids everywhere in and around Cedar Springs grabbed their crayons, and put color to paper in their best effort to win this year’s prize, the popular American Girl Doll.
Three runners up were selected from three different age groups. And it was hard! It was clear to all three judges that all entries were top rate this year.
The names of the nine “finalists” selected were placed into a red flannel hat for the winning draw. (Pun intended.)
We picked the best and Lady Luck did the rest!
Congrats to nine and one half-year-old Jessa Riley P. (Patin) of Sand Lake, Michigan, she may pick up her doll today (10am to 5pm) or after the holiday weekend.
We thank all who participated. Finalists are invited to stop by after the holiday weekend and pick up a consolation prize for their efforts.
