On Thursday, April 3, 2014, the Logan County Bar Association held its quarterly meeting at the Logan County Courthouse for the purpose of making a special presentation.
Joshua Butcher, President of the Logan County Bar Association, presented a framed 20 by 24 in. composite photograph of the local bar as a gift to the Courthouse. Butcher also presented a smaller picture to each of the county’s judges.
“For years, the members of our Association have talked about the desire to put together a composite photograph of our members for posterity’s sake, and we are glad to have now brought it about,” Butchers says. “I would like to thank Rob Kuenzel for taking the lead on this project and Beth Forester Photography for the great job they did. It will be nice for future visitors to the Courthouse to be able to see who all made up the bar of local attorneys in the past.”
The picture will hang in the Courthouse where it can be appreciated by the public.
“It is our hope to do this every few years so as to preserve the history of our Association,” said Butcher.
Judge Kelly Codispoti was surprised by the gift.
“I had no idea the Bar was gifting these lovely pictures to each of our Judges, and I am thrilled to have received one,” says Codispoti. “It is such a nice gesture, and I plan on hanging it proudly in my Courtroom!”
Magistrate Dwight Williamson, who was also in attendance for the presentation, thinks the pictures are a great idea and that the local bar should continue this tradition of taking a composite photo every so often.
“You know what a lover of history I am, and this is very thoughtful of the Bar Association,” says Williamson.
