We've crowned our winner.
Readers since last Wednesday have uploaded nearly 50 photos to our St. Patrick's Day/Irish pride contest. Babies, kids, adults and pets alike comprise the gallery, a tribute to the popular Irish holiday. Unfortunately, we could only choose one photo as the winner of our weekly photo contest. We had to go with the delightful photo of Milford Public Schools bus driver, "Moe," uploaded by MHutch. MHutch, we'll be emailing you to make arrangements to get you your $25 gift card. Thank you to all who entered!
