FARMINGTON — The Gold LEAF Institute Senior College recently held a photo contest among its members, according to a news release from the organization. Out of 16 entries, two were chosen by attendees at the kick-off event for the fall/winter term of classes. The photos will be used to design a cover for the organization’s informational brochure, and for future course booklets.

The “Gold Leaves” of the birch trees was submitted by Susan Wahlstrom and received the most votes. The second choice was the photo of “Gold LEAF Hikers” taken by Michael Field on Wing’s Field in Industry, at the start of a hike up Pico Mountain. The winners will receive credit for one year’s membership dues.

Classes and activities are designed for those 50 or older, and their spouses or partners regardless of age, who are interested in lifelong learning opportunities and socializing with people who have similar interests. There are no tests, homework, or educational requirements to be a part of Gold LEAF.
