The cans, presented to the Sequim City Council last month, will be displayed in businesses around the city throughout the centennial celebration.
Once dubbed the “Dairy Center of the Northwest,” Sequim's dairy industry had 9,000 cows within 5 miles of Sequim, according to information from the Centennial Committee.
Citizens will be able to bid on their favorite cans through a silent auction, winners of which will be announced at the Centennial Finale at 7 Cedars Casino on Nov. 2.
Painting cans were Sunny Benham, Cathy Clark, Nancy Hofmann, Kali Bradford, Lo Cole, Monika Livingstone, Linda Stadtmiller, Ellen Swears, Saundra Cutsinger, Adrienne Periere, Maryann Proctor, Kathy Corriell, Sky Heatherton, Sydney Dupree, Pam Kauffman and Mary Franchini.
The cans were donated by Sue Hagener and Pepper Fisher, Flo Lackinole, Sue Deshazer, Kevin Hergert, Marilyn Siebens, John and Carmen Jarvis, Karen Smith, Judith Ketchum and the Henrikkson Family.
Cans are pictured in the photo gallery on the city of Sequim's website at www.sequimwa.gov.
Pictures receiving the most “thumbs up” will be featured on the city's website.
