Elementary students from Iola, Gas, LaHarpe, Moran, Elsmore, Humboldt, Zillah and Piqua were guests of the Iola Unity Club at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center to see “Aesop’s Fallibles,” an up-to-date version of the famous fables, presented by the Young Matrons’ Trouping Unit of the Community Children’s Theater of Kansas City. An estimated 1,500 children saw the performance.
