Last week the planning committee of the Logan County
Community Health Fair held their evaluation meeting for the 2010
event, and on behalf of the committee, I would like to thank the
following individuals and organizations for their assistance with
this year's Community Health Fair.
Mr. Steve Aughenbaugh and the State Bank of Lincoln sponsored the
Confidential On-Site Paper Shredding program. The C.O.P.S. program
gave Logan County residents the opportunity to dispose of items such
as financial records, old tax returns and other sensitive personal
and household records in a secure and confidential manner. Proper
disposal of this confidential information helps to ensure that
individuals do not become victims of identity theft. Midwest Fiber,
Bloomington, who provided the service, reports that over 3,000
pounds of shredded material was collected. The paper-shredding
program would not have been possible without the sponsorship of the
State Bank of Lincoln.
Thanks are also sent to the student volunteers from Ms. Tami
Goodrich's classes at Lincoln College. These students developed and
led activities at the Children's Health Fair, assisted with setup
and cleanup, and helped to staff the glass recycling program, which
collected approximately 4 tons of glass during the event.

Without the continuing support of other local governmental
agencies, civic organizations and local businesses, the Logan County
Community Health Fair would have been unable to provide these
special collections. The planning committee is grateful for the
support demonstrated by these groups.
Thanks to everyone who participated in recycling programs offered
through the Logan County Community Health Fair. The Logan County
Joint Solid Waste Agency encourages everyone to participate in the
local recycling efforts -- help keep Logan County green.
