Marion County Lake Chat and Dine Club gathered for a potluck Saturday at the lake hall. It was a smaller group than usual, because many regulars were busy with graduations in their families.
Jackie Volbrecht of Marion County Circles of Hope was a guest speaker. She told the audience about Circles of Hope’s goals and methods to reduce poverty. She said the organization was preparing to sign a contract Monday, officially enrolling for training and curriculum.
Chat and Dine Club started in the 1960s and meets monthly from April to November. This year, dinners are the second Saturday of each month to avoid conflicts with other events common on the first weekends of months. The June 9 potluck will be Hawaiian-themed.
