“We did it! We did it!” shouted 7-year-old Jimmy Lillard as he jumped into his mother's arms to revel in the news that she won Los Alamos County's 60-year anniversary logo competition.
Jimmy and his 5-year-old brother Tommy actually contributed “quiet time” to the project so their mom, Jennifer Lillard, could concentrate on creating her winning design, she explained, laughing.
Her husband, Scott Lillard, completed the excited family's celebration by bringing home a bouquet of flowers for his wife.
“He was very happy for me, too,” Jennifer Lillard said.
Tuesday officially marks Los Alamos County's 59-year anniversary and formally kicks off a year-long celebration leading up to the big 6-0 anniversary on June 10, 2009.
The 60th Anniversary Planning Committee, led by co-chairs Chris Chandler and Lawry Mann, received 20 design entries for the historic logo. A panel of judges from the committee reviewed the entries and selected Lillard's design as the one that best meets the theme of the 60th Anniversary: "Reflections of the Past, Windows to the Future.”
