The Poster Contest winners from the city’s 150th Anniversary Poster Contest sponsored by the Ventura Friends of the Library have been announced. They were judged by Mayor Heitmann, Dr. Michael Babb, Patti Birmingham, James Lockwood and Jill Forman. There were many cute posters submitted. One of the other winners drew a picture of Father Serra surfing in his robes, and one has a birthday cake.
The winners will be honored at a special presentation at the beginning of the City Council Meeting on November 16.
