FARMINGTON — The Gold LEAF Institute Senior College recently held a photo contest among its members. Out of 16 entries, two were chosen by those who attended the kick-off event for the fall/winter term of classes. These photos will be used to design a cover for the organization’s new informational brochure, and for the cover of a future course booklet.
The “Gold Leaves” of the birch trees was submitted by Susan Wahlstrom and received the most votes. Coming in as the second choice was the photo of “Gold LEAF Hikers” taken by Michael Field on Wing’s Field in Industry, at the start of a hike up Pico Mountain.
Each of the winners will receive credit for one year’s membership dues. Congratulations to the Gold LEAF winners and thanks to all the photographers who submitted entries.
