Rain pushed back the Autumn Family Fun Festival one day, but a large crowd still turned out for the annual event in Swimming Pool Park. One of the activities was pumpkin decorating.
The Marjorie E. Gruis Trust made two additional gifts to the community last week. The Belmond Fire Department received $100,000 and the Belmond Hospital Foundation received $50,000.
There were some positive announcements at the Oct. 5 Coffee and Conversation hosted by the City of Belmond.
