The 2017 Keep Friendswood Beautiful calendar is out and available for purchase at City Hall at 910 S. Friendswood Drive in Friendswood.
The KFB fundraiser is only $5 and is available in the Parks and Recreation Department office on the second floor of City Hall.
The calendar has been created using photographs from the 2016 Friendswood Proud KFB Photo Contest and includes parks, historical places, animals, dramatic skies, and city landscapes.
The photo contest was held last April and KFB received more than 200 entries.
First place was awarded to Tommy McDonald for his Friendswood Flag photo which made the cover of the calendar. McDonald won a treat filled Yeti Cooler donated by JSC Credit Union. McDonald has a total of five photos that are part of the calendar.
Sarah Collins won second place with a photo of Stevenson Park’s Gazebo. This photo is used for June 2017 in the calendar. Collins won a $125 gift card donated by Sno-Beach.
Gail Lovely’s photo of a hawk in Quaker’s Landing won third place and it is August 2017 in the calendar. Lovely won a $75 gift card donated by Sno-Beach.
Amanda Duncan received Honorable Mention for a photo of the Perry House which is on the page with September 2017. Duncan received a $20 gift card donated by Rise Cupcakes and free coffee from Dunn Brothers Coffee.
Other photographers who have photos in the calendar include Valerie Dobard, Joanna Pesek with two photos, Aimee Rasmussen, and Doug Winkler.
Proceeds from the calendar sales will be used for Keep Friendswood Beautiful events and activities.
