Big Hope barge
You may have had to do a double take to make sure your eyes weren’t deceiving you if recently you saw a pink barge at Logsdon’s being loaded with grain. Big Hope, owned by the Ceres Barge Line of St. Louis, has been painted pink to bring awareness of the hope for a cure for cancer. Ceres plans to contribute a percentage of Big Hope’s net earnings to cancer research. See next week’s Star-Gazette for more details about the barge and how the idea for a pink barge was conceived.
