Avery Snover is not your typical young man, a fact most who know him can testify to as being true. Not long after moving to Eads to live with his grandparents and subsequently entering high school, Avery got a job at Crow’s Stop and Shop where he quickly became known as “the kid” who was always friendly and ready to help.
The Tuesday after Thanksgiving, also known as “Giving Tuesday”, ended up being a good day for the burgeoning efforts of local residents to open a child care center in Eads. By the end of the day, Little Leaders Learning and Care Center (LLLCC) had raised $600 from local donations. That, combined with the equal match provided by Facebook and PayPal, means that the child care and learning center will be receiving $1200 after the first of the year.
The staff of Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site cordially invites the community to attend our Holiday Open House on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm at the park administration office located at 910 Wansted Street, Eads.
The annual arrival of Santa Claus and the traditional chili supper to kick off the Holiday season will occur at the Eads Fire House on December 4 beginning at 5:30 PM. The event is free to the public and is presented by the Eads Chamber of Commerce, Kiowa County Fire District and the local EMT volunteers. Photos with Santa will be available for $1.00 each.
In addition to the festivities at the firehouse, Kiowa Health Mart will stay open later into the evening for your shopping enjoyment providing great deals on gift ideas and some delicious holiday snack foods.
