Scotts Valley Kiwanis
The fifth annual Music at Skypark summer concert series wrapped up with a huge September show. Hundreds of attendees came from all over the county to enjoy music from the Coffis Brothers and the Groove Hounds. This was the program’s most successful year to date. Through the generosity of local sponsors and vendors, more than $20,000 was raised for the music program in Scotts Valley schools. An appreciation dinner will be held November 13.
Other upcoming November club events include the ongoing Highway 17 cleanup program, set-up of the Scotts Valley Educational Foundation Christmas tree lot and the purchase of dozens of gifts for the annual Big Brothers/Big Sisters Santa Claus visit to Shadowbrook.
The club meets at 7 a.m. every Wednesday morning at Bruno’s BBQ, 230-G Mount Hermon Road in Scotts Valley. The second Wednesday of each month is an evening meeting at Bruno’s at 6:30 p.m. All are welcome.
