CROWN POINT — The city received more than 200 entries in the St. Patrick’s Day logo contest, Special Events Administrator Diane Bosse told the City Council at its March 3 meeting.
The winner again this year is Brooklynn Frassinone, 11, a student at Solon Robinson Elementary School. This is the third year in a row that she has won.
“The panel of judges had a hard decision to make in selecting the winner as we received so many great logos,” said Mayor Dave Uran.
Entries are judged anonymously.
“Brooklynn has set the bar high,” Uran said. “After three wins she will join the panel of judges to vote for the 2014 logo.”
Coming in second place was Hannah Browned, 11, a student at Taft Middle School. Tyler Kuss, 10, Timothy Ball Elementary School was third, and fourth place was won by Abi Neuwirth, 11, from Colonel John Wheeler Middle School.
All four of the winners will receive a certificate for Shamrock Shakes from McDonalds and VIP seating for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Once again Frassinone will be the Jr. Grand Marshall and ride Molley the Trolley during the parade.
The city had two banners made with the images of all for logos on it that will be placed on each side of Molley the Trolley for the parade.
Bosse also reminded everyone that the party starts at noon at the fire station for the shaving of heads to raise money through St. Baldrick’s Foundation for research to find a cure for childhood cancer.
Then the annual corned beef dinner is served in the big fire bay starting at 1 p.m. Tickets are available at the Parks Department located in the On Broadway building, 11065 Broadway. The cost is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and a hot dog meal for kids is also available.
Activity around the square includes food and craft booths in the afternoon. The parade starts at dusk, or about 7 p.m.
