John Gilbert, former resident and paralympic gold medalist, will be returning to his hometown Friday, Janury 13, for an assembly at the school. John is a member of the USA Wheelchair Basketball team that won a gold medal at the Paralympics in Brazil this past fall.
Fairfax R-3 School also plans to honor John during that night during the Fairfax Invitational Basketball Tournament.
The Fairfax Improvement Foundation would like to contribute to this honor by erecting a 4’x6’ sign on the school’s grounds. The foundation is asking for the public’s assistance in raising funds for this special honor for John by making a donation for this sign. All contributions may be made to the Fairfax Improvement Foundation and sent to P.O. Box 31, Fairfax, MO 64446 or left at Fairfax Agency, Inc. All donations are tax deductible.
Help us show continual Fairfax pride with your generosity!
