Logan Center has done things for special needs people that no one believed could be done when Logan first opened its doors in 1950.

It started as a small school started by parents who did not want their children locked away in institutions.

On Sunday, the man who has championed advocacy for the disabled for 35 years, helping Logan grow from its humble beginnings to an organization that serves children, adults and people with autism in Michiana, is saying goodbye.

CEO Dan Harshman is retiring at the end of the year, and Newscenter 16’s Maureen McFadden sat down with him this week to talk about that and the big party planned for this Sunday at Logan.

"It's time for a change here. It's time for some new ideas, new energy,” said Harshman. “So Sunday, I think, will be a real neat collection of all sorts of people, which is really neat.”

The open house is this Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Logan, and the public is welcome to come by and say, "Thanks for the memories."

Tune in to Newscenter 16 next week when Maureen will talk more with Dan about Logan's humble beginnings and what is next for him.
