Halloween contest makes ‘cents’

Posted: Friday, Oct 25th, 2013

ROCHELLE –– Gather your spare pennies and vote for your favorite poster displayed in downtown area shops now until Halloween — Thursday, Oct. 31.

The Downtown Rochelle Association is sponsoring a window poster contest from artwork created by the Art Club at Rochelle Middle School. At nine area businesses, you can cast your vote with just one penny. There will be a bin for collecting pennies, with the first and second place winners receiving their money.

The money collected from the remaining votes will go back to the RMS Art Club for supplies. Bob Donovan, Art teacher and Art Club supervisor gave the idea after the window painting that was done in the past became too cumbersome.
