Colouring contest winners announced

Puppycats Pet Emporium and McBride’s provide rewards to four artistic masters

Four young people were rewarded for their efforts in an Easter colouring contest that appeared in the Chemainus Valley Courier April 9.

Jaime Lamont and Kai Rittaler were the winners for the Puppycats Pet Emporium picture. Hanna Starkie and Zoey Parks had their masterpieces on the McBride’s Service Station side of the contest selected as the best of the bunch by the judges, the Dockrill family that owns the two side-by-side businesses.

All four received some treats for the dogs and/or cats in their lives. Starkie and Parks won some special gifts from McBride’s.

All those who procrastinated getting their entries in missed out on a great opportunity. There’s always next time.
