Continuing a tradition started in 2012, there will be three tents outside on the park grounds all day from 7 a.m. - 8 p.m. with warm beverages and warmer fire pits. Sign up to be a volunteer greeter, crossing guard, treats baker or firewood bearer for your neighbors for this year’s Nov. 7 election. All of Kingfield (and Kingfield only) votes at MLK Park.
