The 29th Kimbolton Homecoming Festival took place Aug. 24 and 25 with "Saluting Fire and Safety Personnel" as the theme.

It was an enjoyable time in the village that weekend and the festival committee is grateful for everyone who helped to make it a success. We look forward to next year's festival which will be held Aug. 23-24, 2014.

We will be using the theme of "Railroads" since railroads were once such an important part of the community. Anyone who is interested in joining them to help plan next year's event would be very welcome. The next meeting will be Oct. 23 at 6 p.m. at the Kimbolton Community Center.
