Friendship Community Calendar photo contest

FRIENDSHIP — This year the Community Calendar Committee will have a Photo Contest for the main picture of the 2013 calendar. The contest runs through Jan. 1.

Pictures must be taken from somewhere in Friendship (islands included) and must not have close shots of people in them. For example, a distant picture of someone walking on the beach, flying a kite, or digging clams would be OK.

Drop off boxes are at Friendship Village School and the town office. Please name, either parent’s name if child and a phone number on a piece of paper along with the picture in a sealed envelope in one of the two drop off boxes (4x6 pictures are preferred).

The calendar supports graduating Friendship high school students with scholarships.

For more information, call Wanda Benner at 542-3822.
