The Harvester – Harvesting News for Alumni Reports
feature is a daily report sharing the links and news of Kernels
Alumni. Previously, we updated these throughout the day on Facebook as
they happened. I will be posting each morning to try and keep the links
as relevant and fresh as I can. If something comes across during the
day, it likely will sneak into another post. The Kernels will host Kane County tonight in game one of a three game series.
