tinleyjunction.com Life & ARts the tinley junction | February 16, 2017 | 23 Valentine’s Day Coloring Contest draws hundreds of entries Three Tinley Park winners picked from pool of 99 Bill Jones, Managing Editor Given the opportunity once again this year, area youths did not hesitate to show their love and appreciation for America’s armed forces. Publisher 22nd Century Media Southwest Chicago’s Valentine’s Day Coloring Contest for weeks asked for area children to download a blank heart entry form and color it, with all of the entries to be sent through an area organization to active military, as well as veterans. When all was said and done Feb. 8, the seven newspapers across the branch collected a total of 557 entries, with 99 of those coming from Tinley Park. The Tinley Junction’s staff judged the entries across three age categories based on creativity and neatness. The three Tinley Park youths who rose to the top of the pile were Kylie Vanderveer, Lillian Kroese and Rosetta Brumirski. Each of the three winners are to receive a certificate for a free Kids’ Meal at Culver’s Tinley Park, 18248 Sayre Ave. Pictured are the winning entries of (left to right) Rosetta Brumirski, Kylie Vanderveer and Lillian Kroese for The Tinley Junction’s 2017 Valentine’s Day Coloring Contest.
