PUBLIC FORUM: Tree forest a success

— We just completed our fifth year of the Cole Clothing Museum Tree Forest. The first year we raised $5,000. This year the final total was $15,000, all of which goes to The Salvation Army. Now you know why I love Logansport and Cass County.

The sponsors were: Miller, Muelhausen, Groff and Damm Law Office; Tri Green Tractors and John Deere; Deichman Excavating Company; D&B Trucking; Small Parts; Fisher Funeral Chapel; Cole Hardwood; Wilkinson’s Plumbing and Heating; Logansport Memorial Hospital; Trine University; Mike Anderson Chevrolet, Buick and GMC Truck; First Farmers Bank and Trust; Dilling Mechanical; Purdue Alumni Club of Cass County; Logansport Savings Bank; Ag Source; Diversified Electric; Da-Mar Farms; IDI Indiana Dimensions Inc.; Myers Spring; Kelly Leeman Law Office; Regions Insurance; Jeremy Ashcraft; Ivy Tech Community College; Kroeger Funeral Home; Cass County Ford, Mercury, Lincoln; John and Anita Hillis; Central Paving; Salin Bank; Indiana University Alumni Club of Cass County; Cole Hardwood Board of Directors; Shepler Construction; Cass County Tire; Security Federal Savings Bank; Gundrum Funeral Home; Monti and Teresa Mannies; Beacon Credit Union; Psi Iota Xi in honor of Betty Eisert; Cass County Crazy Crafters; Arnold’s Fine Jewelry and Gifts; and Sharon Overway.

The winners were: Bob Deeter, Lisa Smith, Vicki Bauer, Theresa Short, Gloria Mittica, Homer Clossen, Lois Coffman, Rhenda Acton, Mel Winegardner, Robert Wilson, Cindy Beall, Webb Chapel, Tina Nicoll, Tony Hillman, Janet Holcomb, Gerry Ruch, Janet Ingram, Patty Terrell, Mid Lesh, Jean Rozzi, Stacy Platt, Annetta Phipps, Veleta Ulerich, Marilyn Kiesling, Judy Bonnell, Jan Layer, Robin Rozzi and Marlene Rimley.

A special thanks to The Salvation Army, majors Tom and Rose Eagle, Marilyn Minich, Regis Hair Salon, Logansport Mall, Theresa Short, Frank Downs, Logansport Home Depot, Kokomo Menard’s, Sharon Overway, Dawn Fisher, WSAL, the Pharos-Tribune, sponsors, volunteers and especially to those who bought tickets. The biggest thanks goes out to the parents that brought their children to see the trees. Someone said as a family we look forward to this tradition.

I can’t thank everyone who helped make this year a success. I also thank God for using me during this venture.
