PATRIOT'S PEN CONTEST WINNER
The Livingston-Delhi VFW and Ladies Auxiliary are very proud to announce that their entry into the Patriot's Pen Essay Contest not only won first place at the Post and District Level but has gone on to win first place at the State Level. Lenna Foster is a sixth grade student at St. Anthony's school in Atwater California. We are very proud of Lenna. She has received the State awards and she will receive her District awards on February 22nd. Lenna's essay has gone forward to National for judging for National awards.
We wish to thank the three teachers for encouraging their students to enter the contest and for their promotion of patriotism in their students. Our thanks also go to the parents of the students for all of the encouragement they gave to all of those who entered the contest. Each of the students are winners in our opinion. The judging was very difficult, with so many excellent essays to read.
