Kenwood News


KIAA meets this evening, September 12, from 7:00pm to 8:30pm at the Kenwood Recreation Center.  All are welcome.

Future meetings in 2017 are on October 2, November 6, and December 4.



Urgent Notice! Please pass the word to your neighbors.

KIAA is postponing the Annual Gathering that was scheduled for this evening.  This morning we learned that Red Wagon brick oven Pizza is available to cater next week so we quickly decided to postpone for a more enjoyable sunny day.  We hope you can make it for the neighborly fun!


New Annual Gathering Date is Monday, May 8, Time 6-7:30 p.m.
