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
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.
