The models of Abe's stovepipe hat can be decorated by either the
sponsors or artists of their choosing and will be available for
sponsorship beginning immediately.
This year's "Hats Off to Abe"
is in honor of the Logan County Courthouse's 100th birthday. Main
Street Lincoln will sponsor and decorate the official Centennial
Hat, which will reflect the 100 years of progress in Logan County
towns under the umbrella of our magnificent Logan County Courthouse,
a centennial masterpiece.
Sponsorship of hats is open to anyone and everyone in Logan
County. Sponsored hats may be decorated in a general patriotic
theme. Hats are ready for immediate pickup and cost $175. If there
are many requests, hats can be ordered quickly.
