KAY Banquet Was Held The KAYS were thrilled to get to hold their annual recognition banquet this year. Each spring, the group uses the prom decorated gym to host their banquet. High point earners and senior members are recognized. A slide show was shared that showcased the year’s events, members, and projects. The meal was catered by Genes. The meal was served by the KAY sponsors Kathi Boden and Robin Billings, which included smoked brisket, party potatoes, creamy corn, salad, roll, and cheesecake. Musical entertainment was provided by a duet of Mrs. Annie Adams on the fiddle and Pastor Dave on his guitar. To end the evening, the girls showed off their prom dresses and were escorted by the male KAY members around the gym in a fashion show style. Thank you to all the KAY members who made this a successful year!
