Last week’s photo was from the Langley Centennial Museum.

The winner of our contest was Jessica Friesen, who recognized the people in the photo. “That’s my Nana,” Friesen wrote. Her grandmother Connie Winter (nee Jervis) was getting married in 1944, with sister Dorothy Jervis and best friend Dorothy Peacock as bridesmaids – Winter and Peacock were both Langley teachers, and one would lend her name to Dorothy Peacock Elementary in Walnut Grove.

Contest rules:

Preference is given to Langley residents. Entrants must be 19 or older. The winner will be selected by a random draw of all entries. The contest is not open to employees of the Langley Advance nor Black Press.

Winner will be notified by email and must pick up the prize as offered at the Langley Advance office, 6375 202nd Street.

The Langley Advance reserves the right to reject entries deemed unsuitable, libelous or otherwise objectionable. Please keep entries suitable for a family newspaper.
