Lineage needed for F-C Days VIPs

The Iola Sesquicentennial Committee is seeking parade marshals for this year’s Farm-City Days parade who have unique qualifications — their ancestors must have lived in or near Iola in 1859, the year the town was founded, and these descendants must live in or near Iola today. The parade marshals will ride in the annual Farm-City Days parade at 1 p.m. Oct. 17.
In order to be recognized and to participate as marshals, those who qualify must complete a short form, available at the city administrator’s office in City Hall. Deadline for completed forms is 5 p.m., Oct. 2.
