On Saturday, April 30th, Logan’s Landing held our annual “Downtown Green & Clean Day.” More than 70 dedicated volunteers donated a few hours of their time on a somewhat chilly Saturday morning to pick up litter, sweep, pull weeds, rake, and generally spruce up our community. We collected more than twenty bags of trash, 1 bin of recyclables, and multiple bags of yard waste – and swept lots of sand off sidewalks! Now that downtown Logansport has gotten a good spring cleaning, it is our hope that our citizens and visitors will be inspired to help keep it clean and inviting. 

Special thanks to the following: event chair Mark Hartman and Logan’s Landing board members Diana Brown, Vickie Lebo, and Nikki Reid; Cass County Communication Network and the Pharos-Tribune for helping us get the word out, as well as taking photos and video of the event; and to representatives of the following teams: Armstrong Mobile Blasting, Cross-Wind Church & Boy Scout Troop 200, Fountain of Life Homeschool Support Group, the Holliman Family,  the Kleckner for Commissioner Committee, Logansport Utilities, the LSB Junior Board, the Mayorga Family, Midwest  Eye Consultants, the Penz Family, Security Federal Savings Bank, and several individuals and groups of friends for volunteering their time and efforts to make Logansport a community we can all be proud of. 

Let’s all help keep Logansport green and clean!

Logan’s Landing thanks everyone who helped make our 22nd annual Downtown Christmas Open House a success! By exchanging donations of food and pet items, paper goods and cleaning supplies for tickets and depositing those tickets at participating merchants, many lucky shoppers won great prizes, while helping our community’s less fortunate and supporting local businesses. Additionally, there were three Prize Passport winners, who visited all twelve businesses and won a combined total of $475 in Logan’s Landing Bucks!

Thanks to the generosity of the community, we collected approximately 800 pounds of donated items! These items have been distributed to the Emmaus Mission Center, Salvation Army, and the Cass County Humane Society. Special thanks to all of our volunteers, and especially to Wyndi Thompson for chairing this year’s event.

Thanks again to our participating merchants: Black Dog Coffee & Legacy Outfitters, Bonus Pints & the Record Farm, Fernbaugh’s Diamonds & Fine Jewelry, Judy’s GoodLife Emporium, Minglin Jewelers, The Nest, Pear Tree Gallery, The People’s Winery, Sage n’ Tonic, Schwering Realty, Vineyard Community Church, and Yelle’s Boutique. Special recognition goes to Black Dog Coffee & Legacy Outfitters, the winner of this year’s Spirit of Christmas Award for the festive and welcoming atmosphere they provided to event attendees!

Congratulations once again to all the prize winners: Lindy Deeter, Jane Horner, Beth Johnson, Carol Kinsey, Angie Lalla, Linda Ludwig, Helen Rausch, Joy Spencer, Jennifer Sult, Heather Watts, Tracy Williamson, Vickie Winegardner, and Mona Woolington.

We hope to see everybody at next year’s Downtown Christmas Open House!

Logan’s Landing presents the 22nd annual Downtown Christmas Open House,   Thursday December 2nd from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. in downtown Logansport. Join us for a fun evening of shopping and the chance to win great prizes – all while helping our community’s less fortunate.

Next time you’re at the grocery store, pick up some extra canned food, pet items, and/or paper goods and cleaning supplies, then bring them with you to the Downtown Christmas Open House. Visit the Open House Headquarters in the Depot at Fourth & Melbourne, trade your donated items for tickets, then visit the participating merchants and deposit your tickets for your chance to win hundreds of dollars in prizes!

Pet items collected will be given to the Cass County Humane Society, and food items will be split between Emmaus Mission Center and the Salvation Army … so you are helping others while entering to win. Paper goods and cleaning supplies will be split between all three organizations.

Be sure to check out the great bargains available at the participating merchants, and get your Christmas shopping started right here in downtown Logansport!
