Symbol near ballfield gets annual cleaning

Staff writer

A Marion symbol seen by sports fans and city residents as they drive on Eisenhower St. has a fresh, newly restored look. Four volunteers spent Aug. 29 cleaning up Marion’s large concrete letter “M” near the stadium.

“A small group of volunteers go out every season to clean it up,” resident Chris Mercer said. “Some years it is repainted. Every year it is weeded and trimmed and made more visible to the Marion citizens as they cruise by the Marion stadium or head out of town, seeing it off in the eastern distance.”

Marion residents Casey Case, Jeremiah Lange, Mercer, and Roger Hannaford worked on the emblem.
