Thanks for 85th birthday party

Thank you to Sandy of AgVenture for honoring my 85th birthday at the shop with coffee, cake, and cookies. Thank you to all the people who came with birthday wishes, cards, and gifts. All is much appreciated. You made the day a memorable one.

Many thanks to all who sent cards and gifts in the mail and for all the many “Happy Birthday” wishes.

Thank you, too, to my family, when 40 of them came on that cold Saturday to celebrate with fun, laughter, reminiscing, brunch, cake, and ice cream, and more gifts. Wow, what a birthday! Thank you to everyone.

Successful benefit brings appreciation

We would like to sincerely thank each and every person who attended the benefit for Dennis Anderson. Words cannot adequately convey how grateful we are for all the donations received. 

We want to thank everyone who, in one way or another, contributed to the success of the benefit. Some significant donations were received and those most generous gifts enabled us to give all of the money received to Dennis and his family. 

Thank you from the Kingston Lions and the Dennis Anderson family.

Kimball Food Shelf is grateful

How grateful we have been to be able to help those in need at the Kimball Area Food Shelf, Inc. this year. We serve an average of 55 to 60 families a month. Your donation during this Holiday season meant so much to us at the food shelf, we were able to help so many families with a turkey or turkey roll and the other trimmings that make a Holiday dinner so good. All the money that is donated is used to buy food here at the local stores or from Second Harvest Heartland. Thank you again for your continued support to the Kimball Area Food Shelf, Inc.
