City Thanks Garfield Neighborhood and Partners for Initiating Revitalization of Barnes Park; Ribbon Cutting this Sunday

A public park in Marion is receiving a big makeover thanks to the initiative of the Garfield Neighborhood Association and Hands of Hope, a division of Family Service Society, Inc. Garfield Association member and Hands of Hope Director Linda Wilk says the park in their neighborhood, Barnes Park, is undergoing transformation in efforts to ensure a more safe, nurturing environment to foster a good quality of life. Wilk said Barnes Park for years has served little purpose aside from being a spot for criminal-related activity.

Champion of the Month: Dr. Jeanne Argot

Dr. Jeanne Argot, a longtime resident of Marion, was born in eastern Pennsylvania in 1936. She grew up in the countryside near Pocono Lake. Argot developed a passion for nature and biology. Although attending college was far-fetched during those years, she pursued education to the max, first attending college for two-years and becoming licensed to work as a medical laboratory technician at a Pennsylvania hospital. While employed, she pursued and achieved her bachelor’s, master’s, then finally graduated with a doctoral degree in Biology in 1969.
