PRESIDENT’S CORNER – As we head into the end of 2018 let us all remember what the goal of Sierra Oakhurst Kiwanis is to all of us: to serve our community, mountain schools and children; we all need to work together to aacheive our goal.
Our Mini Grants are in process, with awards to be given later this year.
Dec. 1st we will cook for the Children’s Museum of the Sierras. It’s always a fun event to see the excited children come to see Santa.
We will dark on Tuesday, Nov. 20 due to the Thanksgiving Holiday: enjoy your time with family and friends.
Our Holiday Party will be on Dec. 10 at the OLC. Bring an appetizer or dessert for 8 to share. Kids toys and gifts may be donated for the kids at VCH. (Please no jewelry and stuffed animals)
