We have 6 meetings and sponsor many social events like the Welcome Back potluck in June and Family Hayride in October.  Our most important event each year is the annual Homecoming celebration held in August.  KILA also brings together all the candidates for an election year Candidates’ Forum in October giving you the opportunity to hear candidate’s platforms and get your questions answered.
