About Us | History of logo

The Story

The LHCCC logo was professionally created by founders Patrick Donnelly and Geoff Peach on the back of a napkin at Tim Hortons, Woodlawn Road West, Guelph, ON in 1998. After, they washed out the coffee stains and the Apple Fritter crumbs. They wanted to create a meaningful logo that represents the core focus of the Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation's goals and values.
