On Thursday June 13 at 1 p.m., NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Joseph “Joey” Gase will be speaking at the Kalona Public Library along with Kalona native Morgan Ebel. 

Gase drives the No. 35 Toyota Supra for MBM Motorsports. 

Ebel is a 2010 Mid-Prairie graduate and a two-time kidney donation recipient and will give some insight into her experience and help to raise awareness about organ donation. 

Both speakers are advocates for organ donation and the Donate Life organization. 

Gase will read aloud “Howl Goes to the Races” a children’s book by Brenda E. Cortez that he provided information for. 

Howl is a young owl that has had an organ transplant and is invited to a day at the races as a special guest. 

All ages are welcome.
