The MGMC is Immortalized!

This year marks the sesquicentennial (one-hundred-and-fiftieth anniversary) of the founding of the city of McPherson. As part of the celebration the McPherson Convention and Visitors Bureau commissioned a few items as a fundraiser. One of these is MacOpoly,  fun-filled game that celebrates the unique features of the city of McPherson. The MGMC has a place in history as one of the spaces on the board.

Macopoly games are now available at the

McPherson Convention & Visitors Bureau or

at the McPherson Community Building.

Games are $45 ea.

Grab a piece of history while they last and

help support the 150th Celebration. All

proceeds will go to support other events

planned throughout the rest of the year.
