DOWNTOWN CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE ENJOYED BY ALL!

December 7th, 2021

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!
