Ava Shinaver’s Flag Design

“I am very happy with how this project turned out,” commented Village of Middleburgh Mayor Timothy Knight. He continued, “Ava did a beautiful job with her excellent flag design, and I cannot wait to fly it in the Village of Middleburgh on Heritage Day.”

As the winner of the People’s Choice, Ava will be receiving $50 and a flag with her design will be ordered and flown as part of the Village’s Heritage Day festivities on Friday, August 23. All funds for this contest are donated by members of the Village Board of Trustees.

“We are truly blessed that Ava, Hunter, Rivo, and Zoe answered the Village’s call by participating in this project, and they all did a wonderful job,” the mayor commented. He concluded, “Special recognition is owed to Middleburgh Central School Teachers Katelynne Schuttig and Jason Dannible, who played a big role in this project’s success and encouraged their student’s participation.”
