Marion is working to create a unified vision for the community; a vision that will bring new business and investment to the area, grow tourism and visitor spending, increase business revenues, and drive Marion's future. And it's important for our Linn-Mar community to weigh in on this process.

More than 100 people attended the community branding kick-off event on Oct. 17th at Lowe Park. As the city branding team works to identify what sets Marion apart from other communities, the next step is to gather community feedback. Please take a moment to complete a nine question online survey, and invite others - both in and out of the Marion area - to do the same.

To access the survey, click here: City of Marion Branding Survey

Thank you for your participation!

 Linn-Mar's 'Unsung Heroes'

Recently a group of Linn-Mar teachers received the 2014 Unsung Hero Award. They were the only teaching team in Iowa to receive the award from more than 1,000 applicants nationwide.

In addition to the kudos, the 2014 Unsung Hero Award carries a grant of $2,000. The grant money will help purchase a number of expensive items for a multisensory room to help students with autism and other severe physical, emotional and behavioral conditions.

Congrats to teachers Kat Power, Sean Smith, Barb Frahm, Janelle Jones and associate Teena Power. Sandee Detweiler was an associate last year when the grant was written, but she resigned during the summer.

 Tree Planting at Novak Elementary

Novak Little Lions have recently been working on a tree study. One of their activities was to plant a red oak near their playground.

Before planting the tree, the young students measured it with standard measurement - and then measured it with the students themselves! They found out the tree is about three children high or two teachers high. (They laid it down for those measurements - no climbing on shoulders!)

These little lions worked with teacher Pam Hackbarth to dig the hole and explored the roots before placing the tree in the hole. Then the children helped to fill in the hole and finish the tree planting. The students will care for their new tree throughout the school year.

The class also read the story "A Tree Named Steve" - so now they also want to name the tree!

This special tree is on the west side of our Little Lions playground. Pam Hackbarth's hope is that in years to come it will provide shade to the children playing at Novak Elementary.
