Chat and Dine Club meeting July 9


The Marion County Park and Lake Chat and Dine Club is having its next potluck dinner at 6:30 p.m. July 9 at the East Shelter House.

This is the annual cookout and organizers are asking anyone planning to attend to bring a side dish to go with hamburgers and hot dogs.

The event was moved back one week to avoid conflicts with July 4 activities.
