Kiwanis and Community Volunteers Clean Park

The West Valley Kiwanis and West Valley High School Key Clubs hosted a clean-up of the West Valley Community Park on Saturday, October 23, from 9 am to noon. 54 volunteers participated, including members of our community and the Kamiakin Kiwanis Club. This was a great event that generated 200 volunteer hours to support the Kiwanis mission "to make the world a better place one community and one child at a time."
