Logan’s Landing is pleased to announce the winner of the 2012 Scarecrow Row competition. Event Chairman Rob McMinn stated, “We were impressed by the imagination and creativity shown by all twenty competitors, but only one scarecrow could be chosen as the winner. That winner is ‘Texting Twyla,’ created by the Jim Kitchell Agency.”

For creating the winning scarecrow, the Jim Kitchell Agency will receive a free advertising package valued at over $600, donated by the Cass County Communication Network, Mid-America Radio, and the Pharos-Tribune.  The  carecrows along Broadway and Market Street were enjoyed by passers-by, as well as hundreds of trick-or-treaters who participated in Downtown Spooktacular and the Elks Halloween parade.  Logan’s Landing Executive Director Becki Harris stated, “We believe that the scarecrows added a fun seasonal touch to the  downtown district, and were enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.”

Logan’s Landing is a non-profit organization dedicated to making Cass County’s downtown between-the-rivers district a viable place to operate a business, a rewarding place to live, and a fun place to visit.  For more information, call the Logan’s Landing office at 574-722-9345.

The project was funded by proceeds from an arts-themed fundraiser, “Dancing With Our Stars,” and represents a major step in the development of a Downtown Arts & Design District.  An additional pocket park is currently being installed on Broadway.
