Starting on the left, you have the MHK which is not only the airport code, but now is an abbreviation for the community. Below that is "The Little Apple," the town's beloved nickname. Then the Wareham sign, paying homage to the local Wareham Hall and the man who did so much for our town.

You can't think of Manhattan, KS without thinking of Bill Snyder Family Stadium and the Flint Hills under those images are two bicycles. Little Apple Bikes are all over in the spring and summer months! Then, the big man himself, well maybe the other one, the mythical man himself, Johnny Kaw!

The barn quilt in the center, and then the Big Red 1, paying tribute to Fort Riley, KS, and the rowing teams training on Tuttle Creek and the State Motto, "Ad Astra Per Aspera." A depiction of the Varney's building in Aggieville, which is not currently Rally House, and finally the "Welcome" sign that greets those coming into town right before they cross the river on 177.
