Depicting Cherokee's 150th Birthday, the colorful logo will adorn all types of Sesquicentennial memorabilia, beginning with T-shirts geared at raising funds to enable the committee to purchase future souvenirs and related memorabilia.
The logo was designed by Mick Samsel of Creative Services, and Vanessa Reusch of the Chronicle Times.
