The Marshalltown Federation of Women's Clubs Board met on May 9 with Nancy Stone presiding with
10 members present.
The board is preparing for the first Binford House Barn Sale from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday at 110 N. Second Ave. Household items, toys, all kinds of books and home items will be for sale in the Binford Barn on the west side of the house.
This is one of the fundraising efforts the board sponsors to help maintain the house for use for family, business and organization meals and social events. More sales will be held in June, July and August.
The English Tea was a success on May 4 with plans made for the May 3,2014, event.
The painting of the house started this week thanks to the grants from the Marshalltown
Assistance League and the Martha Ellen Foundation. Plans are being considered to renovate the ramp
entrance on the south side of the house to make it in compliance with the American Disabilities Act.
