Cleanup night slated next week

TRUMAN – Kids games are held 1:30-2:30 p.m. Mondays at the Truman Museum.

Marilyn Carrigan and Barb Grefe teach games that children of yesteryear enjoyed.

Many children have joined in the fun this summer, and new members are always welcome.


This month’s pickup for food items from Second Harvest Heartland will be 9:30-10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

It’s hoped that more Truman area seniors, 60 and older, can pre-register to receive these food items.

The food is distributed to Trinity Lutheran Church on the third Wednesday of the month.

Trinity Lutheran, Truman Church of Christ and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church volunteers take turns in distributing the food boxes that come to Truman each month.

To be eligible to receive the food, you must call (800) 365-0207. Registration is an easy process.

Each month the food box contains canned fruit and vegetables, juice, peanut butter, canned meat, cereal, evaporated milk, cheese and other items.


A salad and hot chicken sandwich luncheon is being held 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Truman.

Take-outs are available.

The price is $8 for adults.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
