The Journal’s Online Back-To-School Photo Contest Winners

By Joanne Colella

The family of Rene Forsythe (left) and Amanda Gallo (right) set sail with their gift certificate from Kathleen D Sailing Catamaran.

Last month, The Journal celebrated the start of the new school year with a Back-to-School Photo Contest on our social media platforms! Readers were invited to sail into September by sharing their own photos from the first day of school with us on Facebook and Instagram for a chance to win a generous gift certificate from Kathleen D Sailing Catamaran in Highlands. We enjoyed seeing great images of lots of smiling faces. Two lucky winners were chosen in a random drawing: Amanda Grace Gallo and Rene Bruce Forsythe, who shared even more terrific photos of her family enjoying their prize outing as a perfect end to summer. Thank you to all who entered and congratulations to the winners!
