We would not be able to do as much as we do to help those victims of domestic violence and their family members here in Cass County without the help of such a generous and wonderful community. We are looking forward to seeing you at one of our 2014 events: fundraiser sale of laundry detergent and softener, Dessert First Ham Dinner this May, Fall Food Sampler, Silent Auction this fall, our yearly Letter Campaign in July and our annual DVTF Vigil (this will be the second year for this). Again our sincere gratitude and thanks to the Cass County community!

Showing the carouselthe respect it deserves
During the past week, we have had some special events going on at the carousel. Recently, the Lewis Cass High School had its SADD dance at the McHale Complex, along with the carousel. It is exciting for the youth to show their support for our carousel and to show the respect it deserves. It is also exciting for us to see all of them dressed up like young adults, but still have the kid inside them shine through as they ride these amazing works of art to catch the brass ring.
Also several exchange students from area schools came to visit the carousel. They were able to get a little history lesson, along with how to master catching the rings. It was fitting to have some of them from Germany since Gustav Dentzel who made our carousel was originally from Germany.
It is opportunities like this that give our organization a chance to share with the next generation our wonderful masterpiece that we are so fortunate to have. We would like to thank them for choosing our facility and allowing us to help create memories that they will always share. It is our pleasure to welcome schools, organizations, etc. to visit and see our National Historic Landmark that has been in Logansport since 1919. Our mission will always be “to preserve and protect the Dentzel carousel for the benefit and enjoyment of the children of Cass County forever.”
