Willy J’s was full of young Marion County residents Thursday night for the first Power Ups of Marion County meeting. Nearly two dozen residents between 21 and 39 attended.
Founder Terry Jones said he was pleased.
The next meeting is set for 6 p.m. Aug. 14, but the location hasn’t been determined. Jones is considering meeting bimonthly with one formal meeting and one a meet-and-greet.
Jones is also looking to increase participation among people outside Marion. If you’re interested in joining contact Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org.
