Nominations needed for OTD Couple

The Old Timers Days Festival is seeking nominations for the 2015 Old Timers Days Couple. Write a detailed, meaningful letter about the couple you’d like to nominate and be willing to read it on stage at the festival during opening ceremonies.

For a couple to be eligible for this honor, one of the two must be at least 70 years old and nominated by a relative or friend in a letter telling about their achievements and their support of our town of Peebles. The letters are taken out of town so impartial judges can select who will be the winners.

Please send letters to: OTD Couple, P.O. Box 243, Peebles, Ohio 45660. The letters must be postmarked by the Sept. 1 deadline to be eligible and more information can be found at the Old Timers Days Festival Facebook page.
