Dozens of participants joined the festivities, which included a start-up game of softball, on Sunday, July 3, and many brought lunch for a group picnic at the invitation of event organizer Donna Kudebeh.

Last Thursday afternoon, Kimball-Banner County Extension Leader, Erika Loy, along with Extension Intern, Rachel Ibach from Sumner, offered a "Trash to Treasure" up-cycle project for local youth (first grade through senior in high school). These youth were to take an old pallet(s) and create something new and exciting. Jasmine Gawith decided to take on the project of building a dog house for her female fur-baby, Riggs. Riggs is a boxer-mix, and a very special part of the little girl's life. Kimball High student, Saydi Schanaman displayed her artistic ability by painting one pallet in various colors to use as decor. Loy is hoping to offer a similar class for all those "young-creative" persons beyond high school age in the near future.
