Settlers' Day celebrations mark Logan's strong history

Published: 02 Sep 2013

The Logan Village community has thrown a celebration like no other to celebrate 150 years of freehold settlement in the township.

Logan Mayor, Councillor Pam Parker, said the historic milestone had been marked in style with a family fun day attracting more than 2,000 people to Logan Village's Village Green.

"It has been an absolute delight to join Logan Village residents and descendants of the earliest pioneers," she said.

"From the street parade, which started the day's events off in festive style, to the re-enactment of Captain Logan's landing, it has been a wonderful celebration of our history."

Cr Parker said she was most excited by the launch of five special edition postage stamps that were initiated by the Logan Philatelic Society in conjunction with Australia Post.

"Logan Village has not only been put on the map through the celebrations, but it will also be put on many envelopes to criss-cross the country over the coming weeks," she said.

"Logan has a wonderful history to be proud of and a great community that rallies together to celebrate special milestones like this.

"I'm especially proud that local schools, businesses and the community have been working hard for many months to ensure the event was a success and commend everyone who has been involved, especially Settlers' Day committee chair Geoff Kerkow and his team."
