Busy Bees Ask For Food Donations
The Busy Bees are asking for your help this holiday season. Please join us to spread Christmas cheer to our neighbors by donating food items for the local food pantry.
The 4-H children have helped decorate a “Giving Christmas Tree” at the library in Kensington with many helping hands. Food items can be delivered to the Kensington Community/School Library and placed under the tree. The library is open late on Mondays until 7:00pm, and open Saturdays from 9am to 2pm. The Busy Bees will be sure to deliver these gifts to the local food pantry.

The Kensington Senior-Community Center held their monthly potluck on Saturday, December 14th. They combined it with their Christmas party. Fourteen men and women enjoyed a delicious meal. After the meal they played a few games and had a “White Elephant” gift exchange. Afterward, some left but 8 remained to play pinochle and pitch until 4:00pm. Everyone had a great time. Those who were unable to attend were missed. Hope to see you in January! More information on a January potluck to be provided at a later date.
Mat Makers will meet again on Saturday, January 4, from 9-noon at the St. John Lutheran Church. If you want to crochet on your own, there is plarn (plastic yarn) already cut and rolled into balls in the church's hallway. Or if you'd rather come join the fun in person, mark your calendars for January 4!
