By Tom Hawkins

The annual Kosse homecoming is all set to go for this Friday and Saturday, June 9-10. The Kosse homecoming dates back to the 1920 and has always been a big fundraising time for the community.

Activities include two nights of rodeo action at the Kosse Roping Pen, a BBQ Cook-off, the Kosse Greyhound 5K Run/Walk, the annual homecoming parade, the famous Kosse Fire Department BBQ lunch, and a great street dance on Saturday night.

Truly, the Kosse homecoming has fun for one and all. Proceeds go to support various Kosse community projects and non-profit organizations including: the Kosse Community Center, the Kosse Volunteer Fire Department, Kosse Heritage Society, and Kosse City Park improvements.
