Kudos to Stephen DeSena and all the people at Old Barn Self Storage for putting on Bessie the Cow’s Art Contest. They offered more than $1,000 in cash prizes to local students and classrooms. I want to thank them for the generous prizes offered to the winners, and for the certificates of appreciation that went out to all those who entered.

Thank you for offering this to our community.
