Calling all Kenston students! Do you need community service hours? Volunteer Blue is a great way to earn community service hours. Volunteer Blue is meant to promote and to share the experience that the students have to encourage others to help the community. The Geauga Park District is in need of help on October 10 and October 11 at Frohring Meadows Park from 4:15 until 9 pm. Students that volunteer will be helping in a puppet show, face painting, and costumed characters. If interested contact Holly Sauder at email@example.com or 440-279-0802 before the event.

Join the community for a feast starting at 5:30 in the high school cafeteria. Cole Cannon is excited about the big game, "I'm pumped to watch our Bombers take down the team from down the road for my senior year. I'll be sure to get the crowd krazy, Kenston Krazy."
