America the Beautiful photo contest

Thanks for running information regarding the America the Beautiful photo contest that is sponsored by the East Windsor Veterans Commission (on Facebook).  Our original deadline of January 31, 2017 has been extended until April 30, 2017.   We needed to receive 85 entries in order to break even.   Although we didn't reach our goal, the group decided to extend the contest.  They feel confident that we will get there by the end of April.   They will award the prizes of $500, $250 and $100 even if we don't hit 85 entries.  The prize winners will be announced at the Town's Memorial Day celebration.   Amateur photographers can submit a photo showing what they feel makes America beautiful.    The photos do not need to be patriotic.  The entry fee is $10 and the proceeds will help our local veterans erect monuments on the Town green to honor veterans who have served in all conflicts including the current one.  To receive more information go to the East Windsor Veterans Commission Facebook page.   A new entry form and the revised rules reflecting the new date can be viewed and downloaded or you can email me at   My husband Bruce is a member of the Commission.  We appreciate all the support we have received thus far.  Thanks!
