Senior Services Fund ballot initiative

June 28th, 2016

Just a note of information regarding an upcoming ballot initiative, The Senior Services Fund, on Tuesday, August 2, 2016. The Committee for Chariton County Seniors is asking county residents to seriously consider a Senior Citizen’s County Tax that would increase existing services in place for seniors. The proposed tax is a nickel ($.05) for every $100 of the total assessed value of your property.

Possible services to be funded: maintain and expand home delivered meals, expand Care Management Services, Expand transportation for medical care and in-home service visits, enhance senior health and wellness programming, begin a minor home repair program for seniors and offer some vision and dental service. The funds will be managed by a board appointed by the county commissioners and senior citizens will be eligible to apply for assistance through the board’s formal application process.

Please thoughtfully consider this tax to provide these needed services so seniors are able to remain in their homes.

For more information or questions contact:

Sherry’s Home Cookin’ at 660-548-3010 or Salisbury Senior Center at 660-388-5431.

Arabia Steamboat Museum Presentation Huge Success

May 28th, 2014

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the Arabia Steamboat Museum presentation Friday night. Owner, David Hawley, told the fascinating story of their family’s discovery, excavation, and recovery of many items of the lost steamboat. I highly recommend visiting their museum located in Kansas City.

An additional highlight of the evening was seeing the renovation progress of the future home of the Brunswick Area Heritage Museum located in the space above City Hall. The restored tin ceiling is beautiful. This space will be the perfect home for the many artifacts that tell the story of the Brunswick Area.

Donations are being accepted to make the museum handicap accessible. Contact Lynn Leimkuehler to find out how you can support this exciting project to preserve our wonderful heritage.

Blessings of Living in a Small Town

April 22nd, 2014

There are many benefits to living in a small town and the evidence filled the downtown area today with a non-stop flurry of activity by Brunswick RII students, donning neon orange T-shirts. A host of community volunteers worked alongside the students and teachers to beautify the downtown area. The windows sparkle and the streets have been swept clean. A great big thank you to the school administration, staff, and students for jumping into this project with such enthusiasm. What a blessing to see the community come together on this project. Everyone involved did a fantastic job! Thank You!
