Kiwanis steak night is Tuesday

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 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.
