Thanks for supporting collections, recycling at Logan County Community Health Fair

Send a link to a friend 

Dear Editor:

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.

Additionally, American Legion Post No. 263 provided the funds to mail items collected through the Books for Soldiers program to our troops. The American Legion's support was instrumental in offering this program.

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.


Mitzi Rohlfs
Coordinator, Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency
