Flandreau’s 150th anniversary committee has chosen a logo to be used in marketing the event and for T-shirts and other souvenir items that will be sold to mark the occasion.
The final logo was chosen from the design efforts of two people who submitted logos in a contest. Since the committee picked ideas from each of the two different logos, they raised the award to $200. Buck Bauske will be awarded $100 for his efforts on the work. The remaining $100 was donated back to the committee by the other creator.
The logo will be used on T-shirts, mugs and more, plus will be used for marketing, said Dan Sutton, a member of the sesquicentennial committee. Some items will be available for sale as early as October. T-shirts will have a logo without pictures, he said.
The committee received submitted logos from a handful of people who provided at least eight examples, he said.
The event will be held in conjunction with an all-school reunion July 3-6, 2019.
The committee has a $60,000 budget it will work with for the anniversary. That includes $15,000 from the city and the rest from sponsors or donations, he said. All money will go through the city offices.
