Ag in the Classroom topic at Noon Kiwanis

The Kiwanis Club of Marshalltown “Noon” held its regular meeting Tuesday at the American Legion Hall, 1301 S. Sixth St. President Linda Dodd Smith called the meeting to order. After the pledge to the flag, Dodd Smith led a prayer. Happy Dollars were donated by Mike Gowdy, Deb Ewoldt, Laurel Phipps, and Dodd Smith.

Jean Klosterman was introduced as speaker. Klosterman an employee of Marshall County Farm Bureau shared a video of “Farmer Jim” (Jim Mosher from near Liscomb) showing kids in the classroom activities on a farm so they better understand how and where their food is produced. Ag in the Classroom is made possible in area schools with the cooperation of Marshall County farmers, growers associations, Farm Bureau and Iowa State University Extension.

The Marshalltown Noon Kiwanis Club will offer a 30-day free trial membership, including meals to those interested in checking out a service club. This will be an excellent way to introduce new people to serving the community. It meets Tuesday at noon at the American Legion building on South Sixth Street. Offer for limited time only.

Donations were collected for the Under Privileged Children’s Fund.
