THANKS FROM LOGAN’S LANDING

June 17th, 2020

This year, we were not able to hold our usual Celebrate Logansport event due to COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings; instead, we offered strawberry shortcake for delivery only. We would like to thank all of those who ordered shortcake from us — proceeds enable Logan’s Landing’s to continue our programs and projects to improve and preserve Logansport’s downtown district. Special thanks to event co-chairs Echo Cottrell and Challi Pullen, to all of our volunteers who helped with this modified event, to Vibrant Events for the delicious strawberries and cake, and to Martin’s Supermarket for the grocery sacks for deliveries.

We look forward to returning to our traditional Celebrate Logansport event format next year, and hope to see everyone there!
