Kiwanis Holiday Party 052 Med Res Cropped

We are incredibly grateful to Santa and his elves from the Kiwanis Club of Allentown for throwing the jolliest party of the year for nearly 170 Allentown children. Preschool and Pre-K Counts students attending LVCC’s Judith Chase Early Learning Center and LVCC on Walnut Street took a field trip to LVCC at South Mountain for the festivities. The opportunity to ride the school bus was very exciting for the young children, as well as a great experience to help prepare for kindergarten. 

With the help of William Allen High School Key Club students, the Kiwanis Club hosted a merry event filled with laughter and smiles. The children enjoyed lunch, then a center-stage event—a live performance by a magician.

Magician Eddy Ray entertained the children with his jokes and sleight of hand. A few students boldly assisted Eddy during the performance in front of the entire audience. The young spectators watched in awe and applauded the amazing tricks.

At the end of the party, the guest of honor arrived. Santa Claus came to town! The children patiently took turns meeting Santa and telling him what they wanted for Christmas. Although Santa didn’t arrive on a sleigh, he did bring lots of presents for every boy and girl (they all made the nice list).
