Presidents' Challenge Results

We had excellent participation in our Presidents' Challenge this fall! Members were asked to make a children's placemat with the theme of Children's Literature. You may read the details of the challenge in our first post about it.

25 entries were received. Members chose their three favourites, and when all the votes were tallied three winners were chosen. Congratulations to Vi, whose two-sided placemat won first place:
