Lexington Park, Hollywood, and Leonardtown Lions Clubs are pleased to announce the winners of our People’s Choice Peace Poster Contest. Winners were chosen by Facebook viewers who voted by “liking” their favorite poster(s). This contest was secondary to the Lions Club International Peace Poster Contest and gave every artist an opportunity to have family, friends, and the community at large choose the poster best representing a “Celebration of Peace,” this year’s contest theme. The posters are on display at the Lexington Park Library until December 15.
