Citizens of Logan County:
Few dates bring out
so much emotion as Sept. 11, 2001. Each of us has a personal memory
that has become a part of the collective history of that day.
Sept. 11, 2011, was also a day of emotion. This time, however,
amid the memorials was a sense of celebration and sharing.
Celebrated were the lives well-lived and sharing with those who
continue to serve.
Throughout Logan County, individuals, families and organizations
honored both the sacrifice of 10 years ago and the continued service
by the responders and military of our county.
To the Heritage Museum at Lincoln College, Carroll Catholic
School, Park Meadows Baptist Church, Kroger's of Lincoln, Bonanza,
the Mount Pulaski Fall Festival, countless individuals who took the
time to honor our responders and their families, and other
organizations we have missed, we extend our most humble thank you.

The United States of America is a great nation with many
challenges. On Sept. 11, 2011, we joined hands in remembrance. That
same unity will allow us to prevail over the threats of today and
Thank you to everyone.
