Rockville seeking photos for puzzle
MainStreet Rockville is offering a second Jigsaw Puzzle fundraising project highlighting nearby famous covered bridges or other pictures of scenic Parke County.
The new puzzle will sell as a limited edition of 500, and will be offered for sale in The Depot and the Art Gallery in Rockville.
Entrants must submit a high quality photograph of one of Parke County’s covered bridges, or a shot of Parke County scenery taken at any time. MainStreet organizers say any season is acceptable, but entrants should know that last year’s winning photo was a covered bridge in a fall setting. Submissions must be a 4-by-6 inches high resolution photo that can be digitized for printing capabilities.
Rockville MainStreet is a nonprofit organization, so the winning photographer will not be compensated. The organization will give the winner name recognition on the puzzle. Mail submissions to P.O. Box 334, Rockville, IN 47872; for more details, call (765) 569-0226.
