A clock, handmade by C.E. Coleman, a resident at Marion County Lake, is being offered as a fund-raiser for the Chat & Dine Club. It will be awarded Nov. 12 during the club’s annual arts and crafts fair to be held at Marion County Lake Hall.
Florence Middle School students Erin O’Dell, Justin Hett, Dustin Sharp, Jessica Moore, Jenny Lundgren, and Jesse Branson received incentive awards for the first nine weeks of school. Students are recognized for attendance, grades, and citizenship.
