Kiwanis has guests from Emporia

Marion Kiwanis Club had four guests from the Emporia club Tuesday for an interclub meeting.

One of the guests, Virginia Higgins, spoke about the work of the state and international Kiwanis foundations. This year the state foundation awarded $24,200 in scholarships, and the international foundation awarded $5,000 in Kansas.

Higgins also spoke about fundraising for the foundations, which mostly comes from clubs, individual gifts, and estate gifts.

On Monday, the club’s board voted to donate to a girl for engineering camp and donate to Mothers of Preschoolers and the recreational baseball and softball programs.

The club will provide a coffee reception after Memorial Day services.
