This week the Covered Bridge Quilters donated their 10,000th quilt to Mercy Children’s Hospital & Clinics’ neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The group started making quilts for NICU babies 23 years ago when Luella Fairholm’s (second from right) grandson was a baby in the NICU. Since then, the group has averaged 700-900 quilts each year. What amazing work being done by the Covered Bridge Quilters!

Mary Poppins Returns & White Nights
Coming up at the Iowa Theater
Huge Mary Poppins fans ourselves, we’re pretty excited that Mary Poppins Returns is hitting The Iowa this weekend!
Now an adult with three children, bank teller Michael Banks learns that his house will be repossessed in five days unless he can pay back a loan. His only hope is to find a missing certificate that shows proof of valuable shares that his father left him years earlier. Just as all seems lost, Michael and his sister receive the surprise of a lifetime when Mary Poppins—the beloved nanny from their childhood—arrives to save the day and take the Banks family on a magical, fun-filled adventure.

Night Hike to Clark’s Tower
Tuesday • 1/22 • 6:00 – 7:00 pm
Madison County Conservation Board
When the leaves are missing from the trees, the view from the top of Clark’s Tower extends over the Middle River Valley. This means, January is the perfect time to hike to the top of the tower using the natural light from an almost full moon. Hikers will meet at the Madison County Conservation Board Office at 6:00 pm before heading across the road to Middle River Park and hiking to the top of Clark’s Tower. Should the weather seem a little more wintery by then, hot chocolate will be served in the conservation board office after the hike. This is a family friendly hike open to people of all ages. It may be hard to join up with the group once we depart from the office so pre-registration is requested by not required. To pre-register, contact the conservation board office at 515-462-3536 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
