When people were asked to capture the spirit of the town, they did just that. There were more than 125 submissions in the year-long, Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville 150 photo contest.

The contest was presented to celebrate Canada 150 and entrants were encouraged to photograph events, people and the heritage of the town.

The top 25 photographs will be displayed at the town hall gallery until the end of January and featured in the Whitchurch-Stouffville 2018 calendar. The top five winners (Barb Lant, Anastasia Zharova, Clarke Kennedy, Amy Buchanan and Shere Donald) also received gift cards from Henry’s Camera stores.
