Love for photography and an interest in helping to create opportunities for the children of the Mountain Communities led Mel and Kathy Weinstein to create the Mountain Youth Photo Contest this year. The response from local youth from 6 to 18 years of age brought 41 entries. All are on display now at the Frazier Park Library. Go see the show. You’ll be inspired.
