[FEB. 3, 2005] 

Volunteer Historian Contest

Several Logan County sports players accomplished higher levels in their pertinent fields past high school and college play. The "Information Station" -- the new chamber of commerce, economic development and tourism headquarters at 1555 Fifth St. -- is asking for the "loan" of items that can be displayed in the "Logan County Sports Hall of Fame" area in the main lobby. We are not asking for donations, simply loaned items that will be displayed with reference to the donator(s) and can be rotated periodically for visitor interest. Also, if you wish to donate items from these sports legends for our "Celebrity Auction," we would appreciate that, too! Let's show off our great sports legends for everyone to appreciate!

Contest deadline: Receipt by 5 p.m. March 1

Tourist Find Contest

There is only one place from Chicago to Oklahoma on Route 66 that is part of the original 10-foot single lane of Route 66 -- and it's here in Logan County! It is located on private properties, so be sure to let the owner(s) know you want to see the "Route 66 one-lane road." Take your picture along any part of this one-lane original Route 66 corridor and send it in to our new location -- 1555 Fifth St., Lincoln.

Contest deadline: Receipt by 5 p.m. March 1
