Closed until further notice – Better safe than sorry.

We never thought we’d have to post something like this, but with all of the recent closures and recommendations being put out to the public about social distancing and in the interest of maintaining the safety of our volunteers and customers. The KCB board of directors has decided to close our doors until further notice. We’ll also be rescheduling our annual meeting as well as other events as needed. We thank you all for your support, wish you good health, please stay safe.
