Kiwanis celebrates 97th birthday

On Jan. 21, Kiwanis celebrated its 97th birthday. The Kiwanis Club had a beginning membership of 60. It now has a million members.

Marion Kiwanis members Pauline Holub, Marlin Buchholz, Al Ash, Shirley Bowers, and Feebie Holdeman attended a Division 4 meeting in Emporia. District Governor Brad Schields shared information about fundraising for the international project ELIMINATE maternal/neonatal tetanus.

One project is the Eliminate cookbook in which every division is participating. The cookbook will be for sale at Kansas Kiwanis mid-year conference March 9 and 10 at Garden City.

Kiwanis scholarship applications are due. They are available at Marion High School.

Marion County Lake Superintendent Steve Hudson presented how he intends to set a new record for the Guinness Book of Records with a marshmallow roast March 24 at Marion County Lake. Several club members signed up as volunteers.

Eagle Communications of Salina presented a program about creating a home- or business-based website.

Marion Kiwanis meets every Tuesday at noon. Guests are welcome. Individuals 18 or older may join. For more information, call (620) 382-3564.
