I was reading a story in The Republic this morning with a rater larger title. Centennial Circle project allowing Prescott residents to put their mark on the city’s history Well I guess it deservices a large title as it is about how the city of PRESCOTT, Ariz is laying down 1066 pavers and hopes to get each one of them sponsored by someone or some group.
For a tax-deductible donation of $100, sponsors will be able to have a paver engraved with their personal messages. Barbara Gilliss, chair of the local Centennial Committee, said the four-inch-by-eight-inch pavers would have space for three lines — 16 spaces each — for a name or message. “What I’m suggesting is that people can communicate anything they would like to — names, organizations, events, or family names,” Gilliss said. “It’s kind of wide open.”
This is an inventive idea that more cities and town should look into as a way of adding beauty to local downtown and civic areas.
