Marion officials break ground for building project

Members of the Marion-Florence USD 408 Board of Education pose for a photo at the groundbreaking ceremony held last Tuesday for its major facility addition.

The project will include a new gymnasium, fine arts center and indoor swimming pool. Completion is scheduled for sometime in 2008.
