A photo by Judie Reynolds entitled "Remembering our Veterans" -- a scene from the Arlington Heights Memorial Day ceremony at Memorial Park -- is the winner of the 2019 Village Hall Photography Competition.

Reynolds, a member of the Arlington Camera Club, was positioned in a cherry picker machine when she snapped a panoramic photo of attendees during the Pledge of Allegiance. "Any other time people were doing various things, but at this moment, everyone is focused on doing the same thing: being united and paying respect to our flag," she said.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

The village's arts commission judged entries in three areas -- technical, creativity, and interest -- and the winning image was to follow the theme "Celebrating our Arlington Heights Community."

Commission members and Mayor Tom Hayes recognized Reynolds at a village board meeting this week. The photo was enlarged and framed and will be displayed in village hall.
