Dashing through the snow…into 2017

Article Image
It’s almost hard to believe that 2017 is just around the corner…we must have had our heads stuck in sunny daydreams about our past summer season too long to notice! Despite the daydreaming, we are constantly focused on how grateful we are for our KBIA community and supporters that allow us to continue our amazing “summers of discovery” for children.  Thanks to you, we served 680 children in our 106th season!
How can you help us continue the good work as we march into the new year? 
  • Join us in 2017! Membership information is already available online
  • Donate! Fundraising during this holiday helps ensure our future. We accept donations by check, credit card or even stock.  You choose which fund you would like your donation to go towards (scholarships, facilities, or general)…for more information, visit our website. All donations are greatly appreciated and recognized.
We will be sending out our annual January mailing electronically this year, which will be mailed out in three installments to include the President’s letter, Director’s letter, and Treasurer’s letter (including financials overview)…so watch those inboxes!
All of us at KBIA wish you good health, happiness, and peace this holiday season.
