The pictures on display for “Aging in the Wabash Valley” were the winning entries of a local photo competition run by ISU and Arts Illiana.

The winners were announced during a Thursday night event which welcomed Dr. Jeffrey Levine, the photographer of the display for “Aging Across America.”

Several elderly men and women of the Wabash Valley depicted in the local exhibit were engaged in various activities, including prayer, gardening, on the beach, at church or tutoring.

The Overall Winner was an entry called “Rose,” taken by Brazil resident and Tribune-Star employee Sheila K. Ter Meer.  Full Story
