The Morning Optimist Club of Marshalltown held its weekly meeting July 22 at the Hy-Vee Dining Room. President John Hall opened the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance and an invocation. Hall issued several reminders of upcoming events: the Iowa District Convention in Burlington, Aug. 1-3; the Splash Dance on Aug. 6 and the N.O.W. potluck on Sept. 7. He challenged all members to invite one potential member to the N.O.W. gathering.
