Peabody, county tales to be shared
Peabody and Marion County memories and folklore are being collected for two upcoming projects.
Peabody memories, sparked by old photos and movies of Peabody events from 1941, 1961, 1971, and more, will be shared at a lunch at 11:30 a.m. Aug. 4 at Peabody Senior Center.
Participants are being encouraged to bring additional pictures, memorabilia, and stories to share.
Reservations are being accepted by the senior center at (620) 983-2226. The menu includes a chicken enchilada casserole with pinto beans.
Flint Hills Counterpoint also is looking for memories, folklore, and histories that connect to places, people, plants, animals, and land in Marion County for a planned audio tour book.
Information about contributing to the project is available from Marcia Sebree at (217) 620-6173 and Susan Mayo at (316) 258-2342.
