PORT ANGELES — Local photographer Roger Mosley is conducting a contest through the Revitalize Port Angeles Facebook page to honor the recent fence art display created by Franklin Elementary students.
The display is on the fence across from Kokopelli Grill and it has gotten a great deal of positive feedback from community members and city staff as a way to enhance an unattractive fence at the entrance to downtown.
The contest is simple.
The fish with the greatest number of likes will win and the winning artist will be presented with a signed photograph of their fish by Roger Mosley.
There are a total of 37 fish which were created by a multi-aged group from Franklin Elementary during their community service MAC program.
Voting on the art will continue through Jan. 1.
People can visit the Revitalize Port Angeles Facebook page to view and vote on the fish.

Over $1,000 collected for Boys & Girls
PORT ANGELES — As part of its celebration of 125 years serving the people of Port Angeles, Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church sponsored a coin drive and Christmas giving tree for the Boys & Girls Club.
More than $1,000 in coins (125 pounds of coins was the anniversary target to be collected) and gifts of winter clothing, hats, socks, hygiene and school supplies were collected by the people of the church and delivered to the neighboring club.
“It was a delight to collect and donate warmth and comfort to children we do not necessarily know but nonetheless love during this Advent season and throughout the year,” Pastor Gail Wheatley said.
“It is a joy to give from our abundance.”
