Fundraising campaign has been announced!

By MHS Journalism Students

The Edward Lee McClain Day Committee has announced a fundraising campaign to

raise funds for white marble busts of Edward Lee and Lulu McClain to be placed near

the marble staircase at MHS.

The committee needs to raise at least $20,000 for the busts, and the names of larger

donors will be permanently displayed near the busts of Mr. and Mrs. McClain. A

donation of $1,000 will give donors gold status, $500 donors will have silver status, and

$250 donors will have bronze status. More than one name can be included with any of

these donation amounts. Any additional funds will go to the Art Restoration Fund.

Checks (tax deductible) should be made payable to The Greenfield Foundation with the

notation “McClain Bust” in the memo line. The Greenfield Foundation’s address is P.O.

Box 210, Greenfield, OH 45123.

The idea for the busts came from the Edward Lee McClain Day Committee whose

members include Linda Penn, Jimmy Jones, John Wilson, Ron Coffey, Larry Roosa,

and Jason Potts.

Approximately four months will be needed to create the busts once the order is placed.

The committee hopes to unveil the busts of Mr. and Mrs. McClain during the Greene

Countrie Towne Festival next July.
