We had our one day food giveaway Aug. 4 with fruit, corn and potatoes being taken by anyone coming in. The food was provided by the Kansas Food Bank in Wichita.

We received a photo and note from former resident Pauline Edmunds. She now lives in Oklahoma and would love to hear from her Marion friends.

For those knitters and crocheters, the Kansas Children’s Service League is asking for purple newborn baby caps to be collected through October. They will be given to Kansas newborns in November as part of a campaign to prevent shaken baby syndrome/infant abuse.

Janice Warner brought in cherry tomatoes and pumpkins from the community garden in Florence.

We had an interesting program Aug. 10. The women of the Dorcas Society of Our Savior Lutheran Church demonstrated making sleeping mats from plastic bags.

The sleeping mats will be sent to Haiti and other places. The women were Lois Johnson, Irma Meisinger, Ruth Lange, LaVaughn Klose and Marlene Bernhardt.
