President/Treasurer Samuel R. Logan
Appointed: February 2016 • Re-Elected: December 2018 • Term Expires: December 2022
Sam and his wife Ann have lived in the area since moving to Fallbrook in 1988. Sam is an original California native, born in San Diego. After marriage, he and Ann owned their own small meat shops in Denver where they raised their three children. But both prior and afterwards, he worked for many California grocery chains and Arizona Bayless Markets, moving up in the business. One of his favorite flagships in Arizona was the new store concept of AJ’s Fine Foods in Scottsdale which still thrives today. He and his partner then started up a two-store, up-scale grocery company in 1988, called Major Market, Inc. Sam’s expertise in business, including projections, sales, margins, payrolls, and past experience as Meat Director of a 67 store chain, led to successes all along the way and insured Major Market a place at the top. Under his leadership, the company was and is known for excellence in quality, customer service and great variety. These past 27 years with Major Market, he has enjoyed participating in a number of board of directors; the most important he felt was his leadership as President of the Boys and Girls Clubs of North County. At that time, the Club included Fallbrook, Bonsall and the Pala Band of Indian children. When all the other clubs were electing to come together under one group, Sam and his board found their club would benefit by remaining autonomous, which it still is today and is thriving. Pala, of course, has their own club now but Sam formed a positive, respectful relationship with them and their leadership. He has always had a passion for excellence in anything he pursued. Loving Southern California, he and Ann decided this area was the perfect place to retire and Pauma Valley fit them perfectly. He retired recently after helping Major Market go through the transition of the new ownership. Golf and traveling are going to be nice pastimes, but giving back to the community in which he lives is still a big part of his agenda.
