Kiwanis celebrates with local children

The Kiwanis Club of Manchester provided its annual Celebrate With a Child holiday event at the Boys & Girls Club of Manchester this past Saturday, Dec. 6.

This year’s event was attended by 27 children from the Boys & Girls Club of Manchester and included several arts and crafts stations, holiday music by Rob Dionne of the Majestic Theatre, and a special visit by Santa Claus.

“It was a magical day for the volunteers from the Kiwanis Club of Manchester and the Key Clubs as they celebrated with local children,” said Kiwanis Club of Manchester President Michelle Chretien. “This is one of the many ways our club impacts the children of Manchester.”

The event benefitted from the involvement of 20 high school students from Manchester High School West, Bedford High School and Memorial High School. These students participate through the Key Club program. Other community members volunteered time to make this event possible.

The Kiwanis Club of Manchester is an entirely volunteer, community service club, dedicated to serving the youth of Manchester.
