This class was possible through equal donations from the Kim- ball Rod & Gun Club, Kimball Fire Department, Kimball Lions, and Kimball Legion.

KAHS Senior Choir Congratulations to the Kimball Senior Choir for a fantastic perfor- mance in their concert Sunday eve- ning, May 19. Thank you so much to the seniors: Summer Swaisgood, Kaylyn Mancini, Logan Bar- tholomew, Camen Markgraf, Nessa Dahle, and Blake Fox for the beauti- ful yellow roses and candy. It's been great having most of you for stu- dents since kindergarten. Also thanks to the choir for the dozen red roses and gift card to the Olive Garden. You are the most amazing choir I could ever dream of directing. Special thanks to the "Boosters" for their financial help for the trans- portation to the Chanhassen The- ater. It was a fabulous experience for all the students to tour the the- ater and see how a large production is made, be on the stage, visit the seamstress for the wardrobe to see how the costumes are made, etc., and then have a fantastic lunch and see the musical "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." What a wonderful day. Thank you so much! Arlene Sands Kimball District Vocal Music Specialist in the canteen and picking up the tab for the snacks. Thank you to the members of the Church of God for serving the meal for the work- ers. Thanks to the American Dairy Association for the donation of the butter and cheese. Thank you to all who helped advertise; the Tri- County News, EV-W Voice, other local papers, marquee, churches, local businesses, radio and televi- sion stations. A warm-hearted '~Thank You" to the donors. Ninety-eight donors came to donate; 10 were first-time donors. The American Red Cross deferred 13 donors. Four donors took pa t in a double red cell dona- tion. The end result was 83 total units collected, which was under goal, but with the sun being out and farms and construction work- ers in full force, we had a feeling that turnout would be lower than normal. Thank you for making blooddonating a routine in your life. The American Red Cross is always looking for new donors (there was a fabulous group of you this time) and donors who have not given for a while to come out and donate that lifesaving blood that runs in all of us. The next scheduled Blood Drive in Eden Valley is Tuesday, Aug. 20, at the St. Paul's Lqtheran Church in Eden Valley, and Watkins has a drive on Wednesday, July 24.
