Kent

KENT — The recently completed Veterans Memorial in Kent was bathed in sunlight on Sunday,  Nov. 11, as town residents marked the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the exact moment when the armistice was signed, putting an end to World War I — a full century ago. 

American Legion Post No. 153 Commander Martin Lindenmayer welcomed everyone who came out for the ceremony on Veterans Day. In particular, he thanked the Kent Veterans Committee and the Kent Conservation Commission for their contributions to the memorial.

jenniferk@lakevillejournal.com

KENT — Tucked beside Kent Center School is a small bit of land that isn’t easy to farm on a large scale. But, as it turns out, it’s a great place for a garden.
The idea for a community garden came out of the Kent Land Trust’s 2009 planning session.
“Over the winter of 2009, we surveyed Kent residents to see what the interest was,” said Connie Manes, Land Trust executive director. “Were we out of our minds?
