SCARECROW ROW WINNERS ANNOUNCED

October 31st, 2016

Logan’s Landing is pleased to announce the winners of the 2016 Scarecrow Row Competition. The secret panel of judges had a difficult decision to make, as all 44 entries displayed creativity and hard work, but only one scarecrow could be chosen as the winner. That winner is the “shop local” themed scarecrow created by the Nest. For creating the winning scarecrow, the Nest has received a free advertising package donated by Cass County Communication Network, Indiana’s Best Radio, and the Pharos-Tribune.

In addition, this year’s Scarecrow Row Competition also featured a People’s Choice Award, with votes being cast by “liking” scarecrows in the photo album on the Logan’s Landing facebook page.  The winner of the People’s Choice Award was the State Theatre & Record Farm scarecrow, with an amazing 576 votes!  The Lin’s Buffet donated the People’s Choice award of a $25 gift certificate to the lucky winner.

The scarecrows 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 said, “Once again, the scarecrows added a touch of seasonal fun to the downtown district – they were enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.”

THANKS FOR HELP WITH DOWNTOWN CLEANUP

May 9th, 2016

On Saturday, April 30th, Logan’s Landing held our annual “Downtown Green & Clean Day.”

We had an absolutely amazing 211 volunteers this year!  They all donated a few hours of

their time on a cold, rainy Saturday morning to pick up litter, rake, sweep, pull weeds,

and generally spruce up our community. We collected 25 bags of trash, one bin of

recyclables, and more than 60 bags of yard waste, plus at least two truckloads of loose

(unbagged) brush!  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 Deb Ulerick; Logansport Savings Bank and the

Logansport Fire Department for donating bottled water and ice for our volunteers; Martin’s

Supermarket and McCord’s Do It Best for donating yard waste bags; Home Depot for donating

trash bags and yard waste bags; local media for helping us get the word out and recruit

volunteers; and to representatives of Angels of Mercy Home Care, the Bigger & Chapman

Families, Church of Christ at Logansport, Columbia Middle School National Junior Honor

Society, Cross-Wind United Methodist Church, Cub Scout Troop 3203, Family Opportunity

Center, Girl Scout Troop 419, Girl Scout Troop  42413, Hillcrest Baptist Church, Holy Spirit

and Fire Church, Home Depot, Logansport  High School Diversity Club,  Logansport Municipal

Utilities, Peak Community Services,  State Theatre, Walgreens, and numerous individuals 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!
