Intermediate Unit 20 Christmas-Holiday Party December 9, 2014

At the annual Intermediate Unit #20 Christmas/Holiday Party we had 16 members from the Kiwanis Club of Easton along with Bill & Barb Walters' daughter and grandsons, since their school was cancelled due to weather and it fit well as daughter Barbara is a school teacher so she was with the kids. We were pleasantly surprised by a visit from WFMZ-TV news journalist Will Lewis and photojournalist Albert Castro. They came to see our preparation of the event, had lunch with us and stayed for the whole party. It allowed them plenty of time to "see what it is all about" and we had a full 2 minute segment on the 5 o'clock news later in the day. Quoting an email from Will Lewis "I am glad that we were able to give more time to the story this year. I must say seeing the faces of children smile is priceless and listening to how much you care about your charitable work meant a lot as well. My photojournalist...and I admitted that we even got choked up during Santa visiting with the children."

We started off the party with magician Tom Yurasits who had some great "volunteers" including a young boy who placed his wrist in a special guillotine expecting that he was going to lose his hand and the look on his face when he didn't: priceless. Like all good magicians he ended up with "finding" a live rabbit inside a wooden box. We sang songs and that quickly ended when the "guy in the big red suit" a.k.a. Santa arrived. Santa visited around the room and then sat while every child who wanted to visit with him and talk had their chance. As they left to board their busses to go back to their schools our members, assisted by 2 young Boy Scouts, got to hand out the goodie bags.
