If you’re not on Facebook, we will post your pictures for you. Mail or email your entrants to us at Byron Historical Society, P.O. Box 466, Byron WI 53006, or [email protected] One winner will be selected each month based on the most likes from our followers. Prizes will be awarded at the August 21 Ice Cream Social and will include yard signs like the one pictured below. We can’t wait to see the treasures from your collections!
