The Kiwanis Club of Los Banos takes this opportunity to thank all of the organizations and individuals who made our Christmas Eve dinner possible. With your help, our 30th annual dinner reached over 950 people. Santa visited and gave stuffed toys to all children attending. We were rewarded with many heartfelt expressions of gratitude from all who attended. Our sincere appreciation is extended to the city of Los Banos and the Los Banos Fire Department for the use of Fire Station No. 1. To those who financially made this dinner possible, thank you for your continued support. And to the many volunteers who cleaned chickens and prepared, served and delivered meals to those otherwise unable to attend, a huge thank you. As a result of all your generosity, people who would not otherwise have had a Christmas meal got to sit down to dinner. A special thanks to Santa Claus, who was able to spend time with us. At the end of the day, we all went home a bit tired but extremely rewarded for participating in the special day. Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and the true spirit of Christmas and giving of one’s self was evident at the fire station on Christmas Eve.
