Friday, September 14, is the date for the annual Louisiana Loggers Hall of Fame presentation in Dodson, Louisiana, sponsored by The Piney Woods Journal.

Nominations remain open through July 31. Nominations are sought for loggers, living or dead, who have made outstanding contributions to the forest industry and logging in particular, during their working career. Family members, business associates, or others with knowledge of the logger's career, and contributions to his community, family, and the forest industry, are invited to submit nominations.
