It is time again to work on the 2018 City of Pittsburg CommuniTee T-shirt. I have met with the representative from LogoNation and have settled on a design for this year’s T-Shirt. This event is a community project that enables us to hand out T-Shirts at community functions and for individual visitors to Pittsburg. I have personally met with Alyssa Record, our communiTee representative. We have worked with this company for the last several years, and I encourage you to participate in this program. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call Alyssa at 318-512-2796.
