Legion Friday Night

This week at the Kensington American Legion our special will be a baked potato stuffed with broccoli, ham and cheese, or chili and cheese, or sour cream, butter, and chives, served with a side salad and dessert. Our soup will be ham and cabbage (with potato --it's a good German soup). We will have our regular menu items, too. Please call us at 785-476-3204 to have your order to go. Our kitchen hours are from 6-8pm.

Kensington Library

Stop in during the month of March to see the wonderful quilts display. Local ladies and the Prairie Treasures Quilt Guild have provided a beautiful assortment of colorful quilts for us to have on display throughout the month of March, which happens to be National Quilting Month. Some TR KAYS helped to hang these lovely quilts around the library. Special thanks to Kristal Rice, JaCea Hunter and Mariana Escobar for their assistance.

While you’re here, be sure to ask us about Hoopla if you aren’t already using this amazing, digital resource. We would be glad to set you up with a Hoopla account for access to Ebooks, audiobooks, comics, music, movies, and television series.
