Kansas Pride picks Marion for documentary

Kansas State University Community Vitality members Jaime Menon and Jan Steen visited Marion Monday to document how Marion Pride has partnered with Centre Masonic Lodge #147 for community projects.

Some of the major projects were painting planters on Main St., laying down millings on the walking trail in the park, and helping in the community garden.

The film crew spent several hours photographing the trail and interviewing Pam Byer, Marion Pride chairman, and Melvin Honeyfield, worshipful master of Centre Lodge.

Robert Shively, executive director of the Kansas Masonic Foundation, Topeka, accompanied the group. The foundation has been a strong promoter of the Kansas Pride committee and has encouraged all Masonic lodges to assist in community projects.
