Only $2,500 left to raise for new marquee sign

With several recent donations, the fund drive for Petersburg’s new electronic marquee sign has grown to $27,500, leaving just $2,500 left to be raised to complete the project.

The fund has gained more than $10,000 since the “Bash in the Burg” event was held last fall.

Recent donors to the sign campaign have been Great Plains Communications, Mark and Marcia McFarland, Richard Kalvelage Gift Trust, Scott’s Backhoe and Well Service — Scott and Kay Preister, and the Boone County Area Foundation.
