Peace Posters

Each year, Lions Clubs all over the world sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster Contest for students ages 11, 12 and 13. This contest, which began 25 years ago, encourages young people worldwide to express their visions of peace. The theme for the 2012-2013 Contest is “Imagine Peace”. Posters are judged on originality, artistic merit and expression of the theme.

The Bridgewater Public Library is currently displaying posters created by students from the Williams Intermediate School: Bailey Cheatham, Alexandrea MacDonald, Brooke Sutterley, Emma Tubberville, Kellie Vernon, Juliana Marchetti, Abigail Fratalia, Michael Ferrini, Jillian Melanson, Jason Ryan, Jocelyn Levenberger, Nora Ann Logiudice, Mackenzie Wolfe, Cameryn Simoes and Isaiah Crayton . Ellyn Gaspardi is the adult coordinator.

The local contest is sponsored by the Bridgewater Community Lions. The posters will be available for viewing through the end of November in the library’s Flora T. Little Gallery on the second floor.

An Artists’ Reception will be held on Wed., Nov. 14th from 5-6p.m. in the library’s Flora T. Little Meeting Room. A brief overview of the Lions Club International Peace Poster contest will be presented and the local contest winner for this school will be announced at 5:45p.m. Light refreshments will be served. The reception is open to the public and to all the 6th grade artists and their families. For more information please contact Joyce or Martin Middleton at 508-697-6939.
