Marion Senior Center correspondent

The 12th Annual Kansas Day Celebration will be at 1 p.m. Sunday at Eastmoor United Methodist Church. A pioneer-style noon meal will be served by Eastmoor United Methodist Women. The menu consists of beef stew, homemade bread, tossed salad, and peach of apricot pie.

Ann Birney of “Ride into History” will portray Julia Archibald Holmes, a Kansas who traveled the Santa Fe Trail. She was the first white woman to climb to the top of Pikes Peak. She wore bloomers for the ascent.

Marion County mountain climber Gayla Ratzlaff, will introduce the speaker.

Reservations are required. The cost of the meal is $10. For more information call Janet Bryant at (620) 382-3418.
