McPherson Main Street would like to thank Linda Owens and Ellene McKean & Associates Realtors for their $500 donation towards the Downtown Plaza project.
Pictured are Becky Goss with the McPherson County Community Foundation where McPherson Main Street has a fund for Downtown Beautification. The donation is tax deductible through the foundation and will be used toward the initial $1500 concept design fee that Main Street is trying to raise.
The plan is to eventually have the Plaza area utilized like an outdoor community center with seating (tables and benches), shade and upgrades to the electrical system and the addition of an outdoor sound system.
Once the concept drawing is completed, Main Street will start to raise funds for the project through private donation and by applying for any grants that they may qualify for.
In the past, money from the fund was used to purchase and maintain all of the Downtown Christmas decorations that you see on the poles lining Main Street each year.
