The story behind the shirt: 4th grader’s design leads to Fall City Days logo

Fall City Days’ T-shirt logo for 2012 honors the area’s rustic roots. The theme, “Community Driven, Volunteer Fueled,” honors those who work for their town.
“At Fall City Days and Fall City in general, everything is done by community, volunteers and donations,” said Fall City Days committee member Judy Dix. “That’s how we function.”
Maddy Showers, a fourth-grade student at Fall City Elementary School, gets an honorable mention for coming up with the drawing inspiration for the logo. She drew the initial scene, and a designer turned it into a shirt.
“We’re giving Maddy props,” said committee member Laurie Edwards
The tractor represents farming and gardening: “Fall City is a farming community,” Dix said.
Volunteers, meanwhile, are behind the eight-month effort to hold Fall City Days, which itself is a big fundraiser for causes including local schools and the food pantry.
