Port-a-pot decorating winners

May 8, 2016

At the Mother’s Day 5K, we take the port-a-pot decorating contest pretty seriously–those potties don’t decorate themselves! And the really creative ideas deserve recognition: we only give Awards to First Place. (As Saskia says, “There’s no Number 2 in our Port-a-Pots.”) This years winners were Ella & Mira for the Youth prize, and Saskia for Adults. Congratulations to all!
