The Logansport Chamber of Commerce had their monthly meeting at the Logansport Library Tuesday evening, March 1st. The new businesses in town were recognized at the beginning of the meeting. Integrity Counseling has moved into the Duke’s Furniture Building. They handle all types of counseling except military trauma. State Line Precision aka Pudge’s Place was also recognized. They have hunting supplies, gifts and all sorts of novelty items.
As the group dined over Beth Walker’s chicken and spaghetti, there was much discussion concerning regular business and the upcoming events at hand. First Annual “Egg”stravaganza on the Sabine will be held on Saturday, April 16. Filled eggs and games will be the highlight for families to participate in.
Mark Armstrong, with the American Legion, announced that the Post is the only one for the parish. So that all parts of the parish can be reached, they will be moving the meetings to the different libraries around the parish. All veterans with an honorable discharge are encouraged to join.
The Logansport Library reminded that they can advertise area events on the digital sign. Just call the library with pertinent information. Mayor Cordray was pleased to announce that the new restrooms on the riverfront will be ready for the River City Fest.
