What I like best about the town of Logan is the sense of community. Everyone always bands together to help out a member diagnosed with cancer. In general, it is a very friendly and loving community. It also is a fun county with several festivals that go on throughout the year, such as the Freedom Festival, Hocus Pocus Festival, which includes Logan's very own Pumpkin House, turning the downtown area into Whoville at Christmas time.

Logan is a small town, there's really not much to do, especially for the younger generation. I would like to see more things for young people to do here, it seems they don't have much opportunity for good activities, it would be great to see a community center, and other different things for them to do that are good, wholesome activities. The job market could be better as well.
Logan is a great community, with great people. I would like to see more attractions come to Logan for the benefit of everyone.
