TAMPICO — The Tampico Area Historical Society is the sponsor of the Ronald Reagan Statue to be placed in Reagan Park. It has taken more than six years to raise the funds to pay for the statue. Many different fundraising projects have been undertaken.
A walkway consisting of engraved 4-by-8-inch bricks and 12-by-6-inch pavers leading to the statue will be place in the park as a memorial to family members, organizations or businesses. Anyone interested in purchasing an engraved brick or paver must place an order before Sept. 1. For more information, contact Shirley Lester at 815-499-4770 or Joan Johnson at 815-622-8705 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
