A total of five entries were submitted and all were named winners, receiving key to they city pins and a $5 gift certificate to The Old Fashioned Soda Fountain at Lynn's Pharmacy.

Anxious to view the hydrant designs ~ will the paper be publishing the efforts of these youngsters?

An addition to my previous comment ~ how about painting the city hydrants with these designs ~ this could be done by members of our community 'adopting' a hydrant & painting it ~ ~ 'unoit' commenting on the sign ordinance article suggested painted trash receptacles ~ and how about seasonal/event banners on the lamp posts throughout Brazil ~ we already have quaint custom painted business signs ~ maybe some 'dressing up' would add some charm to Brazil not to mention make Brazil a little more desirable when newcomers visit ~ we have so many festivals/parades/events ~ why not promote them? We visit Crawfordsville on a regular basis ~ they promote all events ~ no matter how small or big ~ with yard signs, painted store front windows, lamp post banners ~ there is always a "Welcome" feeling when visiting Crawfordsville ~ another idea for the City Administration to ponder ~
