Kiwanians to help set up for blood drive

News editor

Marion Kiwanis Club will help set up for a Red Cross blood drive Thursday. Setup will be over the lunch hour, and the blood drive will begin later in the afternoon.

The club received a “thank-you” letter from Janet Bryant for Kiwanis’ donation to the Marion County Emergency Food Bank and for giving her time to speak about the food bank.

At Tuesday’s meeting, Andrew Brunner gave updates on city street projects. Williams St. should be ready to reopen Tuesday, and the city has started demolishing part of S. 4th St. for its replacement.

A section of Denver St. that is closed will be reopened before students return from spring break to Marion Elementary School on Monday, he said.

Vogts-Parga, the construction company that will do several street projects around the city, should begin work next week. The biggest portion of that project will be S. Freeborn St. Brunner estimated it will be July before work on Freeborn begins.
