2018 Law Day Celebration

The Law Day 2018 celebration took place on May 5, in Courtroom 1 of the Lycoming County Courthouse. Judges Butts, Linhardt and McCoy presided over the event.

The County Commissioners read the Lay Day Proclamation. Judge Linhardt's official portrait was first displayed. Then the winners of the winners of the 2018 Law Day Art & Essay Contest were identified and read their essay or displayed their art.
