On December 9th the Kiwanis Club of Rolling Hills Estates held their annual Christmas party at the Boys and Girls Club in Harbor City. Fifty children from the Boys and Girls Club and Volunteers of America participated in the event. Ken Dyda, City Councilman of Rancho Palos Verdes and past mayor acted as Santa Claus.

In keeping with the Kiwanis Club mission of giving the children a hand up and not a hand out, and to instill this in the children at this early age, presents were constructed as a gift for their families as part of the program.

Prior to receiving their gifts the children were treated to a lunch of pizza and fried chicken.

Supporting the program were Key Club high school students from Peninsula and Palos Verdes High.
