Once again the Durand Lioness Club is sponsoring the Princess Contest for Durand Railroad Days. The 2017 contest is underway and three contestants are vying for this years' crown. Each girl will place the canister she has created in her sponsoring business for collection of votes. Each cent received will count as one vote. All money collected will be used by the Durand Lioness Club to help in the community. Canisters will be placed in sponsoring businesses on February 10, 2017 until February 24, 2017.
