Organizers postpone Dairy Daze contest

August 11, 2005

The deadline for a logo contest, which was to produce a signature calling card for the upcoming Basehor Dairy Daze, has been pushed back, organizers said. Basehor Dairy Daze is a new annual festival scheduled for June of next year.

The original deadline for the logo entries was Aug. 1. However, that deadline came and went with few local artists submitting entries. The logo selected would be used to promote and identify the festival.

Jenne Laytham, assistant director of the Basehor Community Library and a member of the festival organizing committee, said the contest has been opened back up so a wider variety of entries could be obtained.

A new deadline has not yet been determined, she said.

The organizing committee will discuss and set a new deadline during its next meeting Aug. 17.

Dairy Daze will take place Saturday, June 3, 2006 at Basehor-Linwood High School. An organizing committee, comprised of local residents and organization members, has been meeting for months to plan the festival.

Anyone is invited to participate in the group. Most often, the group meets once a month at the Basehor Veteran's of Foreign Wars post, 2805 N. 155th Street.

The festival was named as a way to pay homage to the city's past history of dairy production.

Anyone interested in joining the Dairy Daze planning committee should contact Jenne Laytham, (913) 724-2828 or Debbie Breuer, (913) 724-9901.
