December provides many opportunities for our Hi-Yu Junior Court to participate and provides numerous hours of community service assistance.
On Saturday, December 1st, the Jr court attended the Kiwanis pancake breakfast where they sold the annual Hi-Yu glass blown red and white ornaments and the souvenir Hi-Yu pin. Towards the end of the breakfast the court assisted with drawing raffle winners for the Kiwanis club. Marines were there also collecting unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots.
That evening, December 1st, at 5:30 pm, they introduced themselves to the community on the stage for the Annual Junction Tree Lighting. They passed the role of "switch throwers" to a little boy and girl, who were chosen from the audience, to light the junction tree. To see photos of this event, please go to The WS Blog.
The following day, December 2nd and Dec 9th, the Junior Court assisted at two events in the WS Junction. At the headquarters they passed out candy canes to the community and across the street they passed out stickers to all of the little ones waiting to see Santa. They will also be volunteering this coming Sunday, December 16th. Santa will be at City Mouse from 11 am - 3 pm. Donations are being asked to suppport West Side Baby, WS Food bank and WS Helpline.
If you haven't already, please support Hi-Yu by purchasing a glass blown ornament for $20.00. The funding helps support the construction of our community float and other events through the year.
