Record Setting Day In Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on March 22, 2010

Leave it to Ottawa to come up with new ways to honor Abraham Lincoln.

With nearly 3,000 Lincoln Logs stacked to the ceiling at Jeremiah Joe’s, organizers of the log stacking think they’ve broken a world record for the tallest Lincoln Log stacking in the world.  The nearly 11 foot tall Lincoln Log tower was the work of the Community House of Arts of Ottawa, or CHOAS, Ottawa High School students and people from the public who donated logs.

The tower which wobbled at times, was unveiled Saturday.  Organizers are selling raffle tickets at Jeremiah Joe’s to be able to knock down the tower next month.
