WBNA 2019 Calendar Contest

What’s your favorite season?  In Wells Branch we have so many traditions and events, it’s hard to choose just one.  Our 2019 Calendar will focus on how we celebrate each of our seasons here in Wells Branch.  We hope you’ll share some of your favorite photos with us!

WBNA 2019 Calendar Contest rules and entry forms are now ready.  The Wells Branch MUD has graciously agreed to let us use the Rec. Center at 3000 Shoreline Drive for entry drop-off and display as the photos come in.  This year’s theme is “Seasons of Wells Branch”.  Both current and past pictures are welcome.  Each photographer will be allowed to submit up to six (6) photos.  If you’d like your pictures displayed at 4th Fest, we need the entries by 8pm, Sunday, July 1.  The WBNA will be accepting additional entries through August 31, 2018.  Winners will be announced on September 1, 2018.  The calendar will be available for purchase at National Night Out on October 2.
