As some of you probably already know, the Lake Spivey Civic Association (LSCA) has a ship's wheel logo that are used in the LSCA newsletter The Anchor and various correspondence. The words LAKE SPIVEY are positioned between the spokes. A similar logo with a ship's wheel logo for Emerald Drive Neighborhood Association sure would have a lot of spokes. With that in mind I tried to think of something simple that residents could identify with. Something that was easy to produce and might identify the theme of the area. I'm not an artist. I thought about a peach but since "Emerald" isn't a type of peach I decided against that. Apparently there are 300 different varieties of peaches but none of them is an Emerald. A green peach doesn't sound too appetizing anyway. The word Emerald made me think of the color green, which made me think of Ireland and shamrocks or clovers. I searched the Spivey memoir A Unique Partnership - Walter and Emily Spivey for anything that might lead me to believe the Spivey's were of Irish descent but alas, I couldn't find anything. I didn't think that an emerald gem would represent our neighborhood well. So, I settled on a logo of a four-leaf clover and filled in each leaf with a single letter - EDNA.
Of course, like anything, the EDNA logo is open to change but until that time I guess a clover will have to do.
