McPherson High School Paver Project/Leave a Legacy

We would like to announce the beginning of a unique fund raising opportunity for McPherson High School activities.  The McPherson Paver Project is a new idea to our community, but is a fund raiser that has been successful in many other places and has raised significant amounts of money.  Pavers are personalized, commemorative bricks.  They are a great way to recognize children and grandchildren, marriages, graduations, and other special events or as a lasting memorial.  They also make unique gifts.
