TRHS Presents You won’t want to miss out! Come join us for a fun evening of entertainment Saturday, Feb. 13 at 7:00pm, or Sunday, Feb. 14 at 5:00pm, as TRHS presents: “You Can’t Be Too Careful” by Carolyn Lane. Four sedate suburban matrons are suddenly interrupted during their weekly bridge game by a pair of inept bank robbers who are desperate for a hideout. At first, our frenzied hostages try frantically (and hilariously) to communicate their plight to two unexpected visitors. Unfortunately, their zany attempts to be saved are to no avail. However, the robbers are simply pretending to be experienced criminals. And with our elderly heroines being avid viewers of television soap operas, they realize they have the two thieves right where they want them! In fact, they know more about the crime industry than their bumbling captors. It is the bridge players who triumph... but not before thoroughly counseling the robbers on the evils of wrong. In the end, the robbers turn out to be ’nice crooks’ on the joyful road of ’going straight.’ The 2020-21 Play Cast includes: Seniors- Jacob Barnes, Caleb Dodds, Cassandra Gibson, and Mya Hoersdig; Juniors- Leland McGuire, JaCea Reece, Kristal Rice, Paul Ferguson, and Jordyn Vales; Sophomores- Cameron Cochrun and Trinity Coomes.

Among the activities, Chrys Engelke shared facts and pieces of history during each morning opening. Then, mid week, Chrys and Charity Randall gave the kids an extra special treat. The two cooks taught each class how to make homemade bread. The kids got to come into the kitchen to see how to mix up the dough. Next, the kids each got a ball of dough of their own to knead into a loaf, ready to rise and bake. At the end of the day, the kids each got their freshly baked loaf to take home. The kids were thrilled to actually make their own bread and then get to take it home to eat!! They felt like real, Kansas pioneers!

Thank you Chrys and Charity, for your extra efforts to make KANSAS Day great!

Lion, Jeff Nech, is a member of the Kensington firefighters and gave a brief history and explanation of how our crew works with the neighboring stations to better serve our area. A majority of fire stations in Kansas function on the basis of using volunteers. He also said that our surrounding communities are very fortunate to have grant money available to improve their equipment and protective gear. Other business included the Lions agreeing to purchase game shirts for our 1st-5th grade basketball teams to wear in upcoming tournaments. The Lions are always happy to be able to lend a hand to help the youth of the community. Members were given their community calendar assignments as well so be on the lookout for your calendar person to be in contact with you to update your calendar order. If you’ve never had one and want a calendar or would like to put family birthdays and anniversaries on it or put an advertisement on it, please contact a lion club member.
