The All Schools Day committee is publishing the “official” All Schools Day program book for 2015. All revenue from ad sales, in excess of the actual expense of publication, goes directly to support this event which is celebrating 102 years this year. The All Schools Day program book will be mailed to every household in McPherson County in advance of the celebration, and extra copies will be available at May Fete and other ASD events. There’s still time to place an ad in the official publication – simply send an email to [email protected]
