Layman named Citizen of the Week
A long-time Logansport resident who has championed an annual drive to raise money for the Logansport Noon Kiwanis Club is this week’s recipient of a special city honor.
Dan Layman has chaired the Kiwanis Rose Day Committee for many years. After he and the club have sold thousands of dozens of roses every fall, he has announced this will be his final Rose Day campaign. Layman also has been active in many other Kiwanis activities and events.
A graduate of Purdue University, Layman came to Logansport more than 50 years ago with his wife Linda when he worked for the former Hook’s Drug Store. He also served on the Logansport School Board. He has been avid supporter of local high school sports and other local organizations.
“Dan has been one of the model Kiwanians over the years who has given happy dollars for many positive things he acknowledged have happened in the community,” Mayor Dave Kitchell said today in honoring him. “Additionally, he’s among many Kiwanians who have participated in the American flag program, and that sets our community apart from many others because of our local patriotism.”
The Citizen of the Week recognizes Logansport natives or residents who contribute to the community or are recognized for their achievements. Recipients received a certificate of appreciation from the city and a $20 gift certificate.
