The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber
of Commerce will turn 100 on June 4, 2013. To kick off a yearlong
celebration, the chamber unveiled its new permanent logo in the
Christmas parade on Thursday.
The chamber's entry in the annual Main Street Lincoln Christmas
Parade included many past chamber presidents; Bobbi Abbott, the
immediate past executive director; and many current chamber
ambassadors and board members; along with current staff.
The chamber's planning committee for the anniversary celebration
thought this very well-attended annual event in the community was a
great way to launch the celebration. The committee is made up of the
chamber's current president, Eric Graue; vice president, Don
Peasley; executive director, Andi Hake; and past presidents of the
chamber, including Donna Boyd, Deron Powell, Patrick Doolin, Dave
Campbell, John Guzzardo, Bill Marcotte, Mary Conrady, Becky Werth
and Bill Gossett.
The chamber will slowly phase in the new logo throughout the next
month and hopes to be completely in use of the new logo by the
beginning of the new year.
In addition to the new logo, the anniversary committee is
planning many other activities, such as special additions to the
chamber's annual dinner, scheduled for Jan. 26; the production of a
publication chronicling their 100 years; partnering with many
chamber members to host a celebration downtown on the anniversary
date, June 4, including a giant cake; and a big celebration to cap
off their annual golf outing, June 7, including a band and admission
open to the public.

"We are very excited about our upcoming anniversary," said Andi
Hake. "I am proud to be a part of an organization that has strongly
supported and served Logan County for 100 years. It is my hope that
the decisions we make today will help the chamber continue being the
business leader in Logan County for at least another 100 years."
The mission of the chamber is to advocate, support and unify
local businesses for the prosperity of Logan County.
