LOGAN, W.Va. — Friday September 23 will mark Logan High School’s Homecoming Parade and football game, and two groups have come together to highlight support for the Logan Wildcats.
The City of Logan and the Logan Banner have partnered to encourage school and community spirit for Logan High School’s homecoming.
The group has put together a contest for businesses in downtown Logan which aims to showcase local support for Logan High School, the community and the many people who return to the area each year for homecoming.
Mayor Serafino Nolletti, city clerk Amber Viars and publisher of the Logan Banner Ed Martin kicked of the campaign at the Logan Banner September 20.
Downtown businesses are being asked to decorate their windows in their best Logan High School spirit.
Each business who enters the contest will receive their own custom sign for their window that reads “Downtown Logan Loves the Wildcats.”
“I am excited to do something to encourage school spirit and put our support behind all of the Logan High School athletic teams and programs.” said Viars. “Logan is the definition of spirit and pride and we want to revitalize that, what better time to start than Homecoming week.”
Publisher Ed Martin noted he was happy the Logan Banner and City Hall could come together on a project which brings people together for a positive message.
Windows will be judged on Friday evening after the homecoming game.
Winners will receive a free half page color advertisement in the Logan Banner newspaper, four free tickets to Southern Coalition for the ARTs’ upcoming production of “Night of the Living Dead,” a free window cleaning from the City of Logan and a trophy.
Anyone who is interested in entering the contest need only to decorate their store fronts and contact Viars at city hall at 304-752-4044 or Kammy Miller at the Logan Banner at 304-752-6950.
The Logan High School Homecoming Parade is set to start 2 p.m. September 23.
