A special thank you to everybody who attended the Holiday Train event Sunday evening. We have collected $4,500 dollars for our local food shelf and still have money coming in.
Kimball Fire and Rescue and Kimball Police, without all of your dedicated people, this would not have been possible.

The following businesses and organizations are responsible for making the evening a success:
Bicycles drawings – A.M. Maus & Son, Hendricks Bus
Hair and turkey raffle, cookies and popcorn, workers that volunteered – Kimball Lions
Cider – Kimball/Watkins Vet. Clinic
Hot chocolate/coffee – Hendricks Sand & Gravel, Inc.
The Eden Valley-Watkins Community Education Department put on a music recital Sunday, Dec. 8. There were many wonderful performers. Teachers, Kris Latcham and Bethanne Holthaus, would like to thank you all for the great performances and all your hard work this fall. Keep up the great playing and singing everyone.
A HUGE thank you to the Kimball Schools for hosting the “Put a Lid on Cancer” fundraiser. Students and staff were allowed to wear a hat all day for a minimum donation of $1. We would also like to say thank you to all of the families for supporting this fundraiser. All of the money raised will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Thank you for your support and helping us celebrate more birthdays. Cancer doesn’t sleep, so neither do we.
The next Relay for Life of Meeker County event will be held Friday, June 13, 2014, at the Meeker County Fairgrounds in Litchfield. If you would like to make a donation, please go to www.relayfor
life.org, search for the Litchfield, Minn., event, and donate to The Barnyard Crew.
Again, thank you to the Kimball Schools, staff, students, and family for raising awareness and money to help those who have/had cancer. It means so much to us.
The Barnyard Crew,
Relay for Life of Meeker County
