Event recap and special thanks from VP & Kessler Krawl Chair Susan Via….


A Good Time Had by Krawl

The annual Kessler Krawl fundraiser & social event was a well-attended bash! It was the perfect storm…the rain ceased on cue, we got to krawling and a good time ensued! Party-goers wined, dined, conversed, sobered up at the coffee station and left with a KNU “swag-bag,” only to be re-purposed for who knows what (groceries perhaps)!

A Historical Salute to the Service and Sacrifice of our Veterans… We Thank you!!!

At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice between Germany and the Allied nations came into effect. In 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11th as the first commemoration of Armistice Day; a day "filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory..."
