We would like to thank everyone who attended the 93nd Annual Chamber Banquet that was held Friday. Congratulations to the following award recipients: Business of the Year: Kenedy Volunteer Fire Department, Tourism of the Year: City of Kenedy and Citizen of the Year: Farris Overby. We have had such a successful year this year, being able to give away $17,907 in scholarships and giving away several donations. We would not have been able to do this without the support of our members and the community. With that being said, we would like thank all of our supporters and we look forward to continuing to serve our community.
The Karnes County Drug Free Coalition hosted their Annual Drug Free Youth Rally Saturday. The event was a free fun day for kids around the county. The kids participated in a cake walk, dance contest and bubble gum contest. Thanks to the Kenedy and Karnes City Fire Departments for coming out, the kids really enjoyed getting hosed down throughout the day. A special thanks goes out to our sponsors: Wood Group Duval, HEB, Select Energy, SBH, Kenedy Chamber of Commerce, Diamond M Ranch and The Law Office of Ramirez & Parenti, TLLC. Thanks to each person who helped volunteer during the event. It wouldn’t have been a success without the extra help. Let’s all continue to work together to keep the Karnes County community safe and drug free.
