ABC Community Correspondent is a community participation project aimed at giving people from diverse backgrounds an opportunity to take their stories to the wider community. Gotta Love Logan was among the 11 chosen from a field of over 80 submissions to become a Community Correspondent. 
This is an amazing opportunity for Logan City to highlight the great things about Logan City and to change the old long standing misconceptions. We have 1 year to do this. If you have any ideas on how we can accomplish this through this program... then I would love to hear from you!

One of the great events in Logan City where we get to showcase some local wine, local talent and local business. We also get to show off our great city and it's wonderful hospitality.

Jazz and Shiraz started in 2009 and has grown in popularity to now be one of Logan City's biggest annual events.

As the 612 ABC Brisbane's Logan Community Correspondent I went along to check out some great wine, great music and had a great night!

Five separate Logan football clubs, from both league and AFL, have grouped together to tackle domestic violence.

From next year, ALL senior players who sign on must complete a domestic violence education course.

As the 612 ABC Brisbane's Logan Community Correspondent I visited the Beenleigh Police Citizens Youth Club which is running the program.
