We Have a Winner!

The first annual Postcards from the Heartland summer contest was a lot of fun! Thanks to all who entered. I received 7 entries, and you all got at least one right. Congratulations to Mary Ann Rowe for winning the prize.

Here are the correct answers:

  1. OK… I think I have actually seen the one at JCCC, but I totally forgot! I don’t go to that side of campus very often!


    • Pioneer Crossing Park is on Shawnee Mission parkway, just west of I-35. It’s small, but there’s a lot to see.
      I’ll do another art contest next summer. I didn’t begin to exhaust the subject.
