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.
