Newlyweds Sierra Strickland and Jason Dahl
Rachel Ray and Chris Sauer
Sue and John Campbell are finally back in Kenwood after their adventures sailing around the Pacific and South Pacific for the last year and a half. They started out from Sausalito, and went down to San Diego to visit their son and daughter-in-law Austin and Brooke, who have since had a baby girl, Paisley, the Campbell's first grandchild. From there they sailed down the coast of Mexico, then headed west to French Polynesia and on to Australia. In Australia they sold their boat, Wizard, and flew to the island of Tonga where they spent the winter caretaking a resort before flying home via San Diego in May. John's buddies are glad he's back to help fill out the poker table, and Sue's friends are just glad she's back because they missed her!
The Kenwood School has received a $1,500 grant from the George Archer Memorial Foundation for Literacy for their reading program, an increase of $500 over previous years' donations. The funds will be used to promote literacy and reading comprehension. George Archer, a successful professional golfer, was unable to read beyond the 3rd grade level, and he and his wife created the foundation because they said, “Every child deserves to read.”

Our annual summer photo contest, Pictures With The Press, is off and running, and already we have some great entries. But don't worry; you still have plenty of time to enter. The deadline is Aug. 22. All you have to do is make sure the Kenwood Press is somewhere in the photo - that's really the only requirement. You could win fame and fortune, or at least the satisfaction of seeing your photo published in the KP. For all the fine print, see page 18.
That's all for now. Thanks to everyone for sending in your news and photos. Reminder: We do NOT publish a July 15th issue of the Kenwood Press. We need a vacation! Our next issue will be out on Aug. 1, and if you have anything for “Village Chat,” get it to us by July 25. It's easy to do. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 833-5155 and chat me up! - AQP
