Thursday, January 27, 2011 Tri-County News Kimball, MN Community Page 3 Central Lakes Snowmobile Club works with local scout on Eagle Project Central lakes Snowmobile Club of Watkins and Austin Roerick of Kimball worked hard this fall to create five new trail signs. Located at snowmobile trail intersections in the area, you will see new signs with permanent location maps, directional signs, and mailboxes with trail maps for snowmobil- ers. These signs were made possi- ble with the help of several scouts and volunteers. Austin spent a lot of time over the summer plan- ning this project. He had to get the plans approved by the coun- cil before he could begin. He also attended local business meet- ings asking for donations and explained how this could help the 'community. He explained that the signs would keep snowmobil- ers safe, keep them on the trails instead of trespassing, and guide them to local businesses to help our economy. Finally, this fall, all prepara- tions had been made and Vossen Bros. construction opened their shop to several scouts and volun- teers for building the signs. As the weather got colder and firmed the ground, the signs could be put in place. The Eagle Scout Project is complete! It could not have been accomplished without the gen- erous donations from area busi- nesses, clubs and private citizens. We would like to thank all who helped make this project a suc- cess. Especially Vossen Bros. Con- struction for their time, building location, tools and expertise on the project. We'd like to thank the follow- ing for their generous donations; Faber Building Supplies, Kim- ball Fire Dept., Kimball Ameri- can Legion, Kimball Rod and Gun Club, John Loch, Mike Truenow, and Roger Cooper. Thank you to The Central Lakes Snowmo- bile Club, the Vossen families, Bill Liedman and scout troop 357 for the help with building the signs.

Pam Matthiesen Webelos Den Leader Kimball CARES Breakfast By Pastor Dave Mill Our community is blessed with a variety of organizations and individuals committed to the same goal: making Kimball a bet- ter place to live for everyone. Kimball CARES (Commmu- nity Alliance of Resources, Edu- cation, and Support) is designed to bring together those who are already working toward that goal. Most groups and organizations work separately, often unaware of what others are doing. If we meet together, we can let each other know what we are up to, coordi- nate our efforts, and find ways to support each other, sharing ideas, dreams, and resources. Quite sim- ply, we believe we can accomplish more together than we can sepa- rately. For this goal to be achieved, it is critical that every organiza- tion, group, committee, church, etc., dedicated to serving our com- munity is represented in Kim- ball Cares. To that end, we invite all community leaders and con- cerned citizens in our commu- nity to attend a free breakfast from 7-8 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 17, at St. John's Lutheran Church, Kim- ball. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to our mayor, Tammy Konz, at (320) 398-5011; or . Tammy will also be glad to answer any questions about this event.
