Grant Received for Pool Project
The City of Kensington has been awarded a $1000 Midwest Energy Community Fund grant for the swimming pool renovation project. The Community Fund benefits charitable, educational and nonprofit organizations in the Midwest Energy service area. Five customer committees review charitable requests and submit recommendations to Midwest Energy management for approval. Each committee allocates funds based on the number of meters in the assigned counties. The committees may direct funds to activities that focus on youth, arts, education, libraries, community events or other priorities that fall within the guidelines.
This gift of $1000 will be used to help complete the new tile and coping (edging) being installed this spring at the swimming pool.
The invites have been mailed out! Plan to attend the Annual Alumni Banquet on Saturday, May 27; please make reservations by May 15, 2023.
Open house from 4:00-5:30pm at the High School. Social Hour starts at 5:30 with Banquet to follow at 6:30pm at the American Legion Hall on Main Street. Honor Class pictures to be taken after. RSVPs and prepayment can be sent to: Kensington Alumni PO Box 72 Kensington, KS 66951. If you have any questions please contact Nikki Blake at 785-476-5297 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
