Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site would like to welcome our newest Lead Park Ranger, Kim Wentland. Kim joined our team in September 2020. Kim was born and raised in Wisconsin and even though she has lived a lot of places, Wisconsin still has a special place in her heart and she's happy to call it her home state. Kim grew up enjoying the outdoors and being surrounded by nature.
The Kiowa County Department of Social Services and the Eads Salvation Army unit would like to thank everyone that so generously donated time, money, and gifts to the 2020 Annual Christmas Drive that made Christmas a little brighter for numerous Kiowa County needy families.
Special thanks go to DSS staff members Kimberly Briggs, Erica Bellomy, Jaylin Spady and Audrey Johnson for their hard work and dedication because without them, the Christmas drive would not have been possible.
Thanks also to the following for their generosity:

The Kiowa County Commissioners would like to express our gratitude to the planning group for the Merry on Maine Holiday Festival.
We understand the enormous planning for this event, along with the love and hope for our residents, businesses, and communities to have an inspirational event of fellowship and joyful celebration. We know that this year has been profoundly disappointing for so many, no celebrations, graduations, weddings, funerals, reduced income, isolation, sickness and loss of life.
