The winners of our monthly contests were announced, and the anonymous writer of the epic piece Letter From Wildfire The Dragon decided to reveal herself. It was none other than Liz Spowart.

So congratulations are in order, Liz, as the second winner of the St Francis Today writing competition presented by Wildside TIMES magazine. There is some money in your bank account, and you will be featured in the next issue of Wildside TIMES magazine, coming out the first week of August.

The winner of the St Francis Today Photography Competition presented by Client Care – ‘Shoot for Success, Frame Your Future, Live Your Best Life’ was Liesel VD Berg for her image, Cycling At Sunset

An amazing reflective study of a cyclist at dusk. 

The only problem is that we have lost Liesel’s email address and need help finding it. Does anyone know Liesel? If so, please ask her to reach out so we can award her a prize. Her winning photo will also go into the next issue of Wildside TIMES Magazine. 

Here are some of the current specials running for those who might like to pop out for a quick meal in these cold evenings. Let us know if you are a proprietor and have some specials you want to get out there.

As always, support local.
