Marion Kiwanis will have its annual steak night at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the east picnic shelter at the county lake. Members who plan to attend should email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a meal. Members are asked to bring their own table service.
Jackie Volbrecht of Marion County Circles of Hope gave an update on the anti-poverty program’s progress at the Kiwanis meeting Tuesday. She said there are three critical messages that need to be understood for a community to eliminate poverty:
- People are suffering from poverty in the community.
- People don’t like suffering and want to get out of poverty.
- And people will make their way out of poverty if they get the right chance.
Circles of Hope meets at 6 p.m. every Thursday at Marion Presbyterian Church. The organization always welcomes new volunteers, Volbrecht said.
