Steamboat Days button unveiled
Though it has been an unusual year the Winona Steamboat Days Festival Association decided unveiled a 2020 button design and sell a limited number of commorative buttons. This year’s design winner is Chase Van Vossen, the son of Marcy and Jeff Van Fossen. Chase will be in the eighth grade this fall at Bluffview Montessori School. Sandy Borkowski, Bluffview art teacher, gave her students the option to created a Steamboat Days button design as a project for class last winter. Chase’s parents only saw the design for the first time at the presentation at Bluffview last week.
This limited-edition 3.5-inch Steamboat Days button went on sale at Midtown Foods beginning on Wednesday, July 22. They are only $2 each.
Winona Steamboat Days is planned for June 16-20, 2021. For informaiton and updates go to WinonaSteamboatDays.com or its FaceBook page.
