As a special treat this year, the United Church of Kensington has requested a display of Student Artwork for their Spring Program -“Masterpiece”. Each person is a masterpiece, and they want to celebrate that. Everyone is invited to the Salad Supper at 6:30pm followed by a program, at the United Methodist Church. This will be on Wednesday April 28th.

KAYS Held Annual Rock and Roll
Each spring the TR KAYS sponsor a Giris Rock and Boys Roll event. Kansas Association for Youth is a program to build character, leadership, and a heart for service to others. So throughout the year, the group provides service to others in the community. Last year, the group could not host this event because of Covid so it was extra special to be able to provide this event to our communities' youth this year!
This event is one of the big service projects that qualifies the group for the Gold KAY Award each year. This year, 26 youth joined in the fun and spent the morning playing games, making crafts, and goofing off with the high school KAY members. The girls also get to have their hair curled and nails painted.
It’s important to provide opportunities for our older youth to be positive examples to our younger kids, and the KAYS don’t ever disappoint. Our KAY youth do a fantastic job of interacting and playing with the younger ones! We have an amazing group of high school youth!
The money raised with this event is always given away so the KAYS thank the parents who sent their kids and helped make this donation possible!
