A big weekend full of events has Kasi Morales, Go McPherson Executive Director, rolling out the welcome mat. 

“With the Kansas Barn Sale vintage market, Mountain Man Rendezvous at Maxwell Game Refuge, and Manufacturing Day tours of local industry, it’s a perfect weekend to explore the possibilities for living in McPherson County,” Kasi Morales said. 

That led to the creation of the  first-ever Stay to Stay weekend event, slated for  Oct. 3 through 5.

The goal, Morales said, is to convince some of those people visting that weekend to consider moving to McPherson County. 

Morales will be working with local businesses, realtors and community ambassadors to craft an individual itinerary for each person or family who registers. 

“We can help people meet hand-picked contacts for jobs, housing and schools that are personalized to the life they want to create,” Morales said. 

Oct. 4, more than a dozen McPherson County industrial employers will open their doors, allowing visitors the opportunity to network with company leaders throughout the day.  

A welcome reception will also take place Friday evening for Stay to Stay guests to meet and mingle with various community members. 

Oct. 5, visitors will have a number of community events to choose from including the Kansas Barn Sale one-day antique and vintage market, Burnin’ Down Main soup and chili cook-off, live music, and recreation of a mid-19th century rendezvous on the plains at Maxwell Game Preserve near Canton.
