Kensington HOME Foundation Spring grants
The Kensington HOME Foundation is pleased to announce spring grants for 2021. We are pleased to fund grants to the Kensington Housing Authority, Kensington Recreation Commission, 3rd grade nutrition education, and middle school character development education. Thanks to all organizations who applied.
The HOME Foundation was founded in 1997 to support and improve the community of Kensington. Grants are funded by a permanent endowment managed by the Greater Salina Community Foundation. The endowment interest—coupled with the generosity of benefactors—has enabled us to disperse $15,900 in grants since 2015 to local civic organizations. Every grant period leaves several worthy applications unfunded. If you would like to find out how you can help please contact a board member: Michael Isom, Adam Synoground, Tim Bartley, Amber Hardacre, Patty Kuhlmann, Cindy Rahjes, and Bob Bearley.
Spring has sprung! The library has switched to spring hours and will now be open: Mondays from 8am-7pm, Tuesday through Friday from 8am-4pm, and Saturdays from 9am-2pm. We will, however, be closed on Good Friday (April 2nd), Saturday (April 3), and only open 2-7pm Monday (April 5) for the Easter Holiday Break. USD 110 will not have school Friday or Monday. Back to regular hours Tuesday the 6th. Wishing everyone a Happy Easter!
