National patriotism was the theme on display in the logo for our local pride with upcoming Bicentennial celebrations in 2016. After nearly three dozen locals designed an entry in the Southbridge Bicentennial Logo Contest, sponsored by Southbridge Savings Bank, votes were cast for the top entries before a panel of area artists carefully weighed each one. Ultimately, local resident Charlene Erazo’s logo — which garnered the greatest number of votes on the Southbridge Bicentennial Facebook page — was the unanimous selection as the official primary logo of the town’s upcoming 200th birthday.
The “Southbridge 200th Anniversary Committee” was made official at the Town Council meeting of April 29, 2013.
