MARYSVILLE — Christen and Joe Dickerson are alumni of Marysville Pilchuck High School, so when the school shootings occurred Oct. 24, they knew they had to help.
The Dickersons and their friends decided to sell car-window decals that say, “Pray For Pilchuck,” with proceeds going to a memorial.
Christen Dickerson worked with Danna Gibson and her cousin, Jolene Buchanan Lasley, to produce the decals through Etsy.com. Christen credited Lasley with coming up with the designs, which include images of a ribbon and the state of Washington.
“From what we understood, other groups are addressing the medical expenses and things like that, so we were hoping to fund a memorial at the school,” said Christen Dickerson, who graduated from Marysville Pilchuck in 2003, a year after her husband, who proudly displays his Tomahawks football helmet and jersey in the front lobby of Pacific Home Appliance. “Rather than just handing out money, we want to build something that will live on forever.”
Demand for the stickers has been overwhelming, Gibson said, and those interested in ordering should go to a Facebook page to check availability or contact Chameleon Prints, 1241 State Ave., #B105, in Marysville or call 360-474-7683. The store plans to provide the items, pending inventory availability, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
