STATEHOUSE (July 31, 2020) — Fernbaugh's Diamonds & Fine Jewelry in Logansport recently received the Governor’s Half Century Business Award recognizing their longstanding service in the community, according to State Rep. Ethan Manning (R-Denver).

"It takes an extraordinary amount of persistence and determination to keep a small business running for an extended period of time," Manning said. "Fernbaugh's Diamonds & Fine Jewelry is a local company that serves Hoosiers during some of the most special moments of their lives, and to be in business for more than 50 years is a tremendous accomplishment."

According to Manning, this Cass County business was recognized for remaining in continuous operation in Indiana for more than 50 years and demonstrating a commitment to serving the community.

The 76 Indiana companies and organizations honored with the Governor’s Century or Half Century Business awards will be invited to participate in the 2021 ceremony, with this year's spring ceremony canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

More than 1,560 Hoosier businesses have been recognized during award's 29-year history.
