If you answered "yes" to any -- or all -- of these questions,
we need you to get on board with the Cornerstone Campaign.
Cornerstone Campaign was launched to help
start the reconstruction of the Old Hattiesburg High School. The
idea is to raise funds for the restoration of the building,
devastated by an arson fire on May 29, 2007.
The idea is to ask people to invest a minimum donation of
$100 to support restoration of the Old Hattiesburg High School. Donations continue to come in,
many have already responded, and the
numbers are growing!
Will you help? Will you contribute $100 to the
Cornerstone Campaign? Please make your tax deductible
contribution check payable to Hattiesburg Landmark Preservation,
Inc., and mail to:

We're also asking you to send this message to your family,
friends and co-workers. Give them the opportunity to join the
Cornerstone Campaign. You can help us save the
historically significant Old High School AND help us realize our
dream of a thriving, growing Downtown Hattiesburg.
