PBHS grad has winning button design
Peabody 4th Fest buttons went on sale Monday with outlets in Burns, Florence, Goessel, Hillsboro, Marion, and Walton complementing 11 local sellers.
Committee member Lisa Hodges said out-of-town sales were a past practice that was re-initiated by fellow member Lisa McDowell.
Brian Wingert, a 2009 Peabody-Burns High School graduate, submitted the winning button design. The vintage red, white, and blue motif features a stars and stripes centerpiece and prominent “FOURTH of JULY” lettering outlined in red accents.
