Thanks: Oranges make children happy

Once again, the Kiwanis Club of Oak Harbor has provided holiday cheer to the children of the community through the annual Santa Orange Project.

Over 1,200 oranges were distributed to preschool, kindergarten and first-grade students. Students were thrilled when Santa handed them their orange.

Our special thanks to Gregg Saar at Market Place for donating the oranges. Thanks to Wes Worrel who delighted the children as Santa. Thank you also to the schools and teachers for giving up some of their class time. We look forward to Santa coming again next year.
