Thank you in 22 languages… including sign language!

By David Strickland, Vice President of Kenton Brothers.

Thanksgiving season is about recognizing the blessings we have and the loved ones we share them with. We just celebrated a holiday in the USA that helps us slow down a little, take a moment and express thanks and contemplate what matters most to us. We were thinking people were more interested in online shopping last week, so we wanted to say thank you this week… as you are getting back to work.

At Kenton Brothers, we have a small list of things that matter most.

Things like: Family, Friends, Health and Happiness. We consider our customers family and friends. So, we would like to say thank you! Thank you for your business and the opportunity to protect your people, property and possessions. We would also like to let you know that we’re praying for your happiness and health. We love serving you and hope you feel that love every day. We hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving!

A spooky wedding for one of our own. Congrats to Meagan and Drew!

2019 Halloween WeddingMeagan asked Drew if he would be attending the 96.5 The Buzz Prom show the following week so they could see each other again. After another show together, the friendship was blossoming. They began reaching out to each other whenever concerts would come around to see if the other would be there. Their love of music quickly became a large part of their relationship.

Fast forward 5 years, too many concerts to count, a boxweiler, and a soon to be new home, it is now time for the dark nuptials.

On All Hallows Eve of 2019 at the stroke of 6:30pm the Kenton Brothers team was united in attendance to celebrate the unity of Meagan Long and Drew Knudson, in a Halloween-esque wedding. The bride was outfitted in a Lydia Deetz inspired red gown and veil while the groom donned an ensemble inspired by Beetlejuice himself. The two opted to go for a glam-goth feel to their Halloween wedding décor. Wanting a celebration that suited their personalities, both the strange, macabre, and the fun were in full swing.

They urged all guests to attend in costume to witness them exchange their personally written vows. From the glowing smoking cauldrons, potion bottles, a Nightmare Before Christmas photo booth, ping pong and cornhole, to the spiderwebs and black lace, there was something for everyone.

Congratulations to Meagan and Drew on their spooky, creative and fun-filled wedding!

The KB Event Space – This is what all the buzz is about!

Kenton Brothers Event Space

By David Strickland, Vice President of Kenton Brothers

Last Thursday, Kenton Brothers Systems for security held its latest event with representatives from multiple industries including banking, property management, law enforcement, municipal government and small business owners from all over the Kansas City Area. The full house was introduced to Advanced Video Surveillance applications and the participant reviews were stellar!

One attendee commented “More! We more we need more of this!”

This is exactly what the Kenton Brothers family had in mind when designing the KB event space. We wanted a modern, comfortable, technologically advanced learning and education space. A space that could serve our customers regular doses of interactive security updates, technology introductions and of course great food and fun!

The speed of technology advancements in the security industry, and the demands on consumers time and resources, dictate that service providers like Kenton Brothers make it easy and convenient for decision makers to stay up to speed on current threat and remedy solutions.
