News for 4/24/24

On Sunday afternoon April 21, 2024, the Kensington Lions Club, along with help from the Thunder Ridge Kay Club, conducted their semi-annual highway cleanup. Under the direction of Lion Galen Larsen, 16 lions and 6 Kay members picked up trash two miles east and west of Kensington.

On average, over the last several years, around 25 bags of trash is collected both in the spring and fall.  Both the Lions Club and Kay Club encourage the general public not to litter our highways.

The Lions Club furnished water and snacks to the workers.
