[June 10, 2017]  LINCOLN - On Thursday, June 15th, the Military Order of the Purple Heart Chapter 159 will recognize the incorporated cities and villages of Logan County for the actions taken by their respective city councils/village boards to each issue a Purple Heart Community Proclamation.

The recognition event will take place in the rotunda of the Logan County Courthouse at 6:45pm. the Military Order of the Purple Heart will welcome representatives from each city/village to this event and thank them for their work in issuing Purple Heart Community Proclamations for their communities.

With the issuance of these Purple Heart Community Proclamations, it is believed Logan County will become the first county in the nation to have each of its incorporated cities/villages pass such a proclamation. The Logan County Board already passed a Logan County-wide proclamation earlier this year.
