Reagan Hall’s design for Hope 225 was presented at the most recent Champlain Township council meeting. Reagan’s logo was selected as the winner for the 2022 initiative which marks the 225th anniversary of the arrival of Simeon Vankleek in Vankleek Hill in 1797.

An initiative of J. Denis Séguin, the Hope 225 project is as the name says: to send a message of hope as he invites local organizations to use the logo in 2022 with the hope that local events are once again part of Vankleek Hill’s community landscape.

The contest came with a $100 prize.

Reagan created the logo on her phone using an app called Procreate. She created an English version and a French version, using the iconic Higginson Tower and adding some animals and a corn stalk to represent local agriculture.
