PUBLIC FORUM: Thanks for the help cleaning downtown

---- — Thanks for the help cleaning downtown

On Saturday, May 3, Logan’s Landing held our annual “Downtown Green & Clean Day.” We had a fantastic turnout, with 108 volunteers donating a few hours of their time on a sunny Saturday morning to sweep, rake, pull weeds, pick up litter, and generally spruce up our community.

We collected 11 bags of trash, one bin of recyclables, and more than 90 bags of yard waste, plus at least one truckload 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: Logansport Savings Bank and the Logansport Fire Department for donating bottled water and ice for our volunteers; Martin’s Supermarket, McCord’s Do It Best, PEO (Philanthropic Educational Organization), and Walmart, for donating yard waste bags; Home Depot for donating supplies for Cole Park; local media for helping us get the word out and recruit volunteers; event chair Mark Hartman; and to representatives of the Berryettes, Deforge Family, Family Opportunity Center, Franklin Elementary School Student Council, Girl Power Team, Girl Scout Troop 42430, Home Depot, Logansport Emmanuel Church, Logansport Fire Department, Logansport Municipal Utilities, Mark Leeman for Prosecutor Campaign, Revolution Community Church, Vineyard Community Church, 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!
