So. Attleboro Lions name poster winners

ATTLEBORO – The South Attleboro Village Lions Club and Chairwoman Del Kelly sponsored The 2017 International Peace Poster Contest. Coelho Middle School 6th-graders, under the guidance of art teacher Susan Casey, participated in the annual event. This year’s theme was “The Future of Peace.”

The first place winner, chosen by club members, was designed by Annabelle Calderwood, whose poster will be available for viewing at the Lions mid-winter conference. In second place was April Graham.

Millions of children from nearly 100 countries participate in the yearly event. Members of the South Attleboro Lions thanked Casey for guiding students and thanked students for their imaginative posters.

The Lions also collect returnable bottles and cans, can tabs, used eyeglasses and hearing aids, as well as discarded cell phones. Call 508-761-4855 to arrange pickup. All profits are donated back to the community to those most in need. Those interested in club membership should call Lion Dottie Irving at 508-399-8790.
