KINGMAN - Kingman Area School Retirees Association held its annual Ditch Day brunch and meeting on Sept. 15 at Upton's Hidden Pines Bed and Breakfast.

The potluck meal featured each member's favorite brunch dishes and was enjoyed by all. A drawing for a sterling silver pendant with inlaid semiprecious stones, contributed by Sandie Womack, was won by Fred Beeman. All donations go to the group's Scholarship/Grant fund.

The Scholarship Committee proposed awarding a mini-grant to a local teacher to be used for classroom supplies and/or projects, and the membership voted unanimously in favor of this option.
