In honor of the city's sesquicentennial celebration in 2007, the Lions Club and City of Eudora are raising funds for a bronze statue of Chief Paschal Fish and his daughter, Eudora, the community's namesake. The statue will be placed in the CPA Park in downtown Eudora. It will be unveiled Oct. 6 during the sesquicentennial/EudoraFest celebration. Engraved bricks are available for purchase and will be placed around the base of the statue.
The price to purchase an engraved brick for the Eudora statue project is $100 each. For each brick purchased, the Eudora Lions Club will match it with a $10 donation.
