Historical Society in search of local talent for ornament contest

The Blount County Historical Society is getting a jump-start on finding a piece of art to be featured on their 2015 Christmas ornament.

Last year, the Society’s ornament featured a painting of the Horton Mill Covered Bridge by Becky Lambert. This year, the Easley Covered Bridge will be featured.

Blount County photographers and artists are asked to bring a colored 8-by-10 copy of their artwork of the bridge to the Blount County Memorial Museum in Oneonta or mail it to P.O. Box 45, Oneonta, by June 1.

The winner will be announced in June. This is the second ornament in the continuing series which will feature other Blount County landmarks in years to come. For more information, call 625-6905.
