2017 Bath Canada Day Button Design Winners

Congratulations to the 2017 Winner, Carlee Neil and the three runner- ups for their terrific designs.

They received their cash awards at the Bath Canada Day Update meeting on May 17th.

A record number of entries were received this year which made the blind judging by the Bath Artisans very challenging. Thank you to the Bath Artisans, Sandra Steinhause, Paulette Batchilder and all the Elementary Schools in Loyalist Township for their support. This is the 43 rd button and it will go on display with the others at the Bath Museum
