Good morning, Marion citizens. I hope everyone is doing well. A great deal has been happening in our city.

The Greater Marion Area Chamber of Commerce sponsored an ice cream social at Northern Latte’s on Sept. 17. It was well attended. The Marion Fire Department personnel and community members, along with myself, Mayor Pro-Tem David Bauch and our wives, were there. The chamber presented a check for $2,500 to the Marion Volunteer Fire Department.

Victor Contreras is the mayor of the city of Marion and writes a monthly column which appears every first Thursday.
