continued In planning for the event, Kurth and Borden said they hope to continue to bring a more traditional “Westport Fourth” back to the community.
“We want to go back to what people did on the Fourth of July before the electronic age,” Kurth said.
As part of the planning for the festivities, the Bicentennial Committee is holding a contest for the creation of a Westport bicentennial logo.
“We are looking for creative people who would want to submit creative graphics and artwork that would represent the last 200 years that can be used as a logo to be placed on merchandise and promotional materials,” Borden said.
Those interested in participating in the contest or joining the bicentennial committee can call Borden at the town hall at 962-8360.
Those interested can also attend the next Bicentennial Committee meeting, scheduled for Sept. 24 at the town hall.
