    Staff at the Marion County Circuit Clerk’s Office joined forces with the Marion County Cattleman Association for a cookout fundraiser for the Trust for Life on Friday, April 8. The Trust for Life will receive $2,000 from the event. The Trust for Life began in 1992 when the circuit clerks of Kentucky recognized a tragedy - 21 people die every day awaiting an organ transplant. When Kentucky’s Circuit Court Clerks began the Trust For Life, it was the first such program in the United States.
