Where’s Wanda? Holiday shopping in Milford Saturday

WILTON – The Economic Development Committee is promoting the launch of the town’s new website (www.wiltonnh.gov) with a fun contest – “Where’s Wanda?” Ten photos of “Wanda” and her faithful dog “Winnie” have been Photoshopped into pictures of Wilton on the website.

Locate those pictures and describe them on the entry form. All correct entries will be entered in a drawing for a basket of local goodies. The contest opened on Nov. 26 and the deadline for submissions is Friday, Dec. 14. The winner will be drawn at the meeting of the Select Board on Monday, Dec. 17, at 6:30 p.m. You don’t have to be present to win and the drawing can be watched on Wilton’s live-stream.

Entry forms are available on-line, the town office, the town library or at Putnam’s Clothing. Entries must be returned there by 4 p.m. on Dec. 14.

You do not have to be a Wilton resident to enter and all ages are allowed.

Those looking for Wanda are advised to look at all parts of the website, including slide shows. Wanda is sometimes with her dog, sometimes in disguise and may have props.

“Wanda” is the creation of 13-year-old artist Grace Keller of Wilton Center.
