Lee County gets new logo

By   /   May 24, 2010  /   Comments

Lee County has collaborated with Albany’s Langstaff Marketing to develop a new image.

“It is a new day for Lee County, and we have been taking progressive strides to better our community,” said County Administrative Alan Ours. “We needed to create a new logo that symbolizes all that has taken place in Lee County, all that is taking place and all that is planned to take place. There is new life and new excitement in Lee County, which created the right timing for an image overhaul,” said Alan Ours, Lee County’s County Administrator.

The logo design was done by The Studios of Bryan Haynes Inc. in Albany. Deidra Langstaff said the strategy behind the logo design and tagline development was to create an identity that was reflective of the people who currently live and work within the county and to attract new businesses to the area. The tagline, “Life works well here,” captured this two-fold idea and complimented the logo design well, she said.

Randolph County to unveil memorial

Amid pomp and circumstance, three years of fund-raising, teamwork and hard labor will culminate with a ceremony dedicating the new Veterans Memorial at Shellman Park on Saturday.

Festivities begin at 3 p.m. More than 20 citizens served on a committee that began working in 2007 to honor the 5,000 or so Randolph County citizens who lost their lives in military duty dating back to the Civil War.

In addition to the V-shaped concrete wall with nameplates and a handsome gazebo, the project is highlighted by a belfry with a state-of-the-art chiming system.

Former Georgia labor commissioner and secretary of state David Poythress, a Democratic candidate for governor who served as adjutant general of the Georgia National Guard for eight years is the keynote speaker, and music by Leo Harrison (a great American himself) and others will follow. Then, of course, there will be barbecue.

Everything is free – except the barbecue.

Red, white and blue – but not too much of it, as it’s almost summertime — would be appropriate attire.
