This year, the children colored newly designed pictures that resembled a stained glass window. These pictures were drawn by Minster native, Ted Monnin. We would like to thank him for the beautiful update, the children did a nice job with the new pictures which will be on display throughout Oktoberfest weekend at the F. J. Stallo Library.
Thank you to our judges: Jill & Hayley Baumer and Paige Purdy. We would also like to thank Stephanie Scheib of Children’s Nest Discovery Center, Jamie Koverman/Charity Ranly of Imaginative Beginnings, Becky Niekamp of Little Lambs and all the staff at Minster Elementary School for their help and cooperation. Also, Becky Prenger and the staff at F. J. Stallo Library for displaying the children’s pictures in the library windows.
The coloring contest Chairman’s were Christine Purdy, and Shelly Heuker.
