A recently established group of New Lisbon business owners is sponsoring a logo contest to help “brand” the town.
The New Lisbon Business RoundTable, which was recently founded to help new and existing businesses in the town, is seeking logo designs that can be used to promote the town as a place to live and do business.
According to a media release from the RoundTable, the logo should be eye-catching and clear, even at small sizes. Color designs should also be able to be used in black-and-white. The logo should portray attractive features of the town of New Lisbon and/or the Butternut Valley, and may not incorporate any copyrighted material or images that have previously been published. Electronic files (.jpg or .gif) are preferred, but hand-drawn submissions on 8½-by-11-inch paper will also be accepted.
Entries may be submitted by individuals or teams to Charlene Wells at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to 829 County Highway 16, Garrattsville, NY 13342. The deadline for submissions is 4 p.m. Dec. 4. Winners will be announced on the town’s website and Facebook page. The winner will receive a $100 gift certificate for use at a business owned by a New Lisbon resident. Second- and third-place winners will receive $50 and $25 gift certificates, respectively.

GOVERNOR SIGNS FARM CIDERIES BILL
Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the Farm Cideries bill into law on Oct. 17, establishing a new license for farm cideries similar to those available to farm wineries, breweries and distilleries. The legislation coincided with the launch of CiderWeek NY, featuring events promoting New York ciders, which runs through Sunday. More information is available at http://www.ciderweekny.com/.
