The Twentynine Palms Pioneer Days, set for October 17 through 19, is getting off to a great start.

Artwork is now sought to depict the theme. Submit your original sketch, painting, photograph or graphic design to adorn thousands of collectable buttons. Please include the phrase “Pioneers & Patriots” along with “Pioneer Days 2014” into your 3 ½” circular design and submit via email in JPEG or .PNG format to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration. Button designs will be accepted via email thru Monday, September 1. For more information, contact the Twentynine Palms Chamber of Commerce at 760-367-3445.
