There’s only a day or so left to get your entry in to the “My Best Ride” photo contest, sponsored by Grand Times, Leader Publications’ magazine for senior citizens.

Jefferson County and Eureka residents of all ages are encouraged to share their memories of their favorite set of wheels. Readers are invited to send a photo of their “best ride,” along with no more than 300 words explaining why it’s their favorite.

The winner’s name will be drawn at random from all eligible entries and will receive a grand prize of $200 cash.

The deadline to submit an entry in the contest is 5 p.m. Friday.

The Oct. 28 issue of Grand Times will feature as many entries as space allows. That issue also will include information about the Eureka Senior Expo, set for Wednesday, Nov 3, at Victorian Gardens, 15 Hilltop Village Center Drive.

Photo contest entries should include the following information:

■ Photographer’s name, age, address and phone number.

■ The date and place the photo was taken and by whom.

■ The names of any people in the photo.

■ The make, model or type of vehicle and how you obtained it.

■ Any other information about the photo that explains why it is memorable.
