AND THE WINNER IS ...
For anyone who missed it, we had a contest to design a logo that best represents our Sesquicentennial Celebration. The winning logo claims the honor of being emblazoned on most of our Macon 150th souvenirs and merchandise - immortalizing it for all time as
an important and permanent part of Macon's Colorful History!
The talented people who designed this winning logo are ...
Janice Snyder and Sharla Di Varmo!!
