Mutants at the 5k!
Yes, since the town was founded in 1854, it has been home to a population of squirrels carrying a mutant gene causing albinism. An estimated 250 white squirrels reside within the city limits, not counting gray squirrels that may be carriers of the mutant gene.
On June 9th, the town will host the RUNNING OF THE SQUIRRELS 5K to raise funds for the Marionville Band Boosters. For more info, check out:
and in the meantime, we will be taking a closer look at the mutants in next week's post...
