Marie told us, in her usual understated way, that she was a regional winner in the Lions Club Peace Poster Contest.  She did this by handing her Mom a permission slip for proceeding further into the contest.

Marie tells us that she will probably be ineligible to proceed much further in the contest due to being too old by about a month.

Here, below, is a photo of her contest entry.  It’s actually a fairly sizable poster that she drew using colored pencils.
