Society of Logan County is having a bake sale at Kroger's main
entrance on Saturday, Sept. 18, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. The sale
will offer pies, cakes, cookies and other sweet treats.
Community High School football players and football cheerleaders
spent a Saturday afternoon and evening doing more than lamenting the
Friday night opening-game loss to Rochester. Thirty-five student
athletes volunteered at the balloon fest, working in programs and
admissions. This is the third year that the students have
volunteered their services at one of Logan County’s most attended
fall festivals. Coaches Jared Shaner and Michelle Ryan encourage
students to volunteer to help instill a social responsibility and to
show them that life extends outside of the end zones.
