Kiwanians sing Christmas carols
Marion Kiwanis Club met Tuesday with 19 members and one guest in attendance. Club members sang three Christmas carols — “Deck the Hall,” “God Rest You, Merry Gentlemen,” and “O Come, All Ye Faithful” — as well as a Kiwanis song and the last verse of the national anthem.
Member Andrew Brunner announced he and his wife, Jenna, are expecting their first child.
The club received thank-you notes from Big Brothers Big Sisters and Marion County Emergency Food Bank. Kiwanis will provide the dinner for Circles of Hope on Thursday.
There will be no meeting Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve. The next meeting will be Jan. 7.
County Clerk Tina Spencer spoke about the many aspects of county business her department handles, from organizing elections to keeping commission minutes and issuing hunting licenses.
