Lifelong Osage County residents Clyde and Marian Burns were named as grand marshals of Lyndon’s Winter Festival parade on Saturday in honor of their community service.

Both are graduates of KU Law School and they opened their law office in Lyndon in 1961. Both have served as Osage County Attorney; Marian for three terms and Clyde for one.

In 1987, with the purchase of Lyndon State Bank, they branched into banking, and continue to take an active part in their community. Marian has been a member of Osage County Economic Development since the late 1970s and was a member of Lyndon Pride from its beginning in the early 1980s.
