Arena Enhancement Project
This project has moved forward quickly. To date, all approved initiatives have been completed with the exception of signage and additional crushed rock. We are requesting a project extension and plan to be completed by June 30, 2012.
This project and other chamber initiatives still need your financial consideration. Donations made payable to the “Village of Kenaston” and directed to the Chamber projects are income tax deductible. See: Printable Form Online for any of the Chamber projects.

Water tower Project:
A display case which will display the history and story on-site, was built by Herman Decker of Clear Spring Colony. Herman very kindly donated his time for this project. The donor and history plaques are waiting to be placed and a “water tower operation” plaque remains in the design stage. This addition to the water tower project should be ready for public viewing by Spring 2012.
Our growing list of email addresses helps us reach more of the rural and village residents who do not receive the newsletter. We are hoping to continue with this expanded email list so the Crossroads and other important notices can be sent to more homes over the internet. Those not on our list can send their email address to Glen at firstname.lastname@example.org

Welcoming New Businesses:
On November 1st Vickie and Tim Holder purchased Al Hoffmann Insurance and they are proud to continue serving the community with this long standing family business. Vickie wishes to thank the Hoffmann Insurance customers for all the courtesies extended to her over her 16 years in Al’s office and is looking forward to helping Kenaston and area residents with all their future insurance needs.
Reminder: Do not park unregistered vehicles on the streets to allow for efficient snow removal.
Veteran’s Park: Kenaston School Students & Mr. Gaspar did a fantastic fall clean-up of the park. Susan Anholt removed some dead branches and trimmed down a few of the hedges.
Notably, Dee Guy has just retired from the Beautification Committee and Colleen Sekulich has agreed to take on the responsibility which has been primarily focused on the Veteran’s Park. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Dee for making our park truly beautiful and a community space that we can all be proud of.
Christmas Hamper Project
Every year the Christmas season brings excitement and wonder, but to many in our midst it also brings with it the stress of financial insufficiency. Once again the Christmas Food Hamper Project will be collecting monetary donations that will be used to purchase
Co-op gift cards. These gift cards will be distributed to recipients, allowing people the dignity of purchasing the food items that they need for themselves.
Anyone wishing a tax receipt can make their donation through any local church or Kenaston Seniors. If you know of a family or individual in need please submit those names to Joan Rink, Pastor Whitehead or Neil Ouellette. Potential recipients will be contacted to ensure their approval. All submissions are kept in the strictest confidence! Thank you for your generosity in this yearly effort.
