DOVER -- The Norma Johnson Center is proud to announce the winners of the spring essay contest and Golden Oak Awardees.
The top winners of the essay contest are asked to attend the Norma Johnson Center Silent Auction and Awards Program on April 4 and read their essay.
The local winner was Trevor Engstrom, a fifth grade student at Midvale Elementary. He received second place in the third to fifth grade essay competition. He will receive $10, a 2013 Norma Johnson Center Family Membership and a T-shirt. His teacher is Mrs. Kandray.
Meanwhile, Golden Oak honorees Steve and Fran LeMasters, "All A Flutter" exhibitors and faithful volunteers of the Norma Johnson Center, will be honored as the Golden Oak Award recipient for 2012. For the last several years, Steve and Fran have brought and manned the Native Ohio Butterfly exhibit to the Center reaching out to thousands of people. Not only do they work with butterflies but they have recently undertook the job of making brooms with the late 1,800 broom machine used by Norma. Fran and Steve continue to help out in many areas at the center and we honor them with this award.
The meeting will take place at the St. John's Church of Christ in Dover on April 4. A silent auction will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a dinner at 6 p.m. Prizes and awards will be handed out at the meeting. Tickets for the dinner are still on sale for $12.50 per adult ticket and $11.50 for children.
