Folks....this is serious. I would encourage all of you to read the article in the PAWNEE Chief...and I would challenge all of the PHS graduates to search your hearts for consideration of donating $$$...(it is tax deductible). And it is about YOUR heritage! I really would hate to lose all the hard work that has gone into making this such a lovely piece of history in our own community. Please. $$$
