Brick Yard Commemoration Fundraiser
Fellow classmates,
The Class of 1961 would like to participate in North Kansas City High School’s “Brick Yard” commemoration fundraiser by purchasing a granite brick in honor of our class. If you wish to help fund the purchase of our class brick, contributions should be made out to: “NKCHS Class of 1961 50th Reunion” – notation:  “Class of 1961 Granite Brick Fund”;  and mailed to: M & I Bank, 1202 NW Briarcliff Pkwy, KCMO 64116, ATTN: Jessica Luedke.   Suggested contributions of $20, $30, $50, $75, $100 or whatever you are moved to contribute is greatly appreciated and benefits the History Hall of Fame in Senior Hall of the high school.

In addition, if you’re interested in also purchasing a commemorative granite brick for yourself, or in honor of family members, a favorite teacher, coach, or administrator, simply complete and submit the order form below.  Bricks are available in various sizes and range from $75 to $830. General questions about the Brick Yard fundraiser can be directed to Bob Hiatt at
