Historical society announces winners of Lewes Landmark Lego Contest
Nov. 1 marked the 50th anniversary of the Lewes Historical Society, an organization dedicated to the preservation of Lewes’s heritage and its wonderful natural and historic built environment. To help promote awareness of some of Lewes’s architectural gems, build appreciation for the impact historic preservation makes on Lewes and to explore the streets and spend time with families and friends, the society held a Lewes Landmark Lego Contest. Kids' Ketch on Second Street in Lewes was the sponsor for this 50th anniversary activity.
The public voted for their favorites during the last three weeks of the Historic Lewes Farmers Market. The winner for the adults' category was Samuel Forker's "Harbor of Refuge Lighthouse." The winner for the children’s category was Mindy Blevins' "Farmers Market."
The Lewes Historical Society thanked all the talented and creative contestants who entered the Lewes Landmark Lego Contest.
