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.

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.
