In August, the Kiwanis sponsored Music at Skypark series continued with the most successful show to date. Hundreds were treated to the fantastic sounds of Xtra Large, and thousands were raised for local schools thanks to the participation of local businesses. The final show will take place Sunday, Sept. 29 at Skypark, 361 Kings Village Road in Scotts Valley and feature The Coffis Brothers and The Groove Hounds.
During August, the club helped paint the Skypark airport historical tribute mural on the library building.
The club planned for the upcoming new officer installation. Steve Dodds will replace Rick King as president, while Peggie Lopez and Linda Benko will continue as secretary and treasurer, respectively. The club also performed a Highway 17 clean-up.
