The Spring Canyon Band will be playing on Sunday, Dec. 9 for the 21st annual Kiwanis Toy Run at the Riverwood Inn on the Avenue of the Giants in Phillipsville. The parade starts at 11 a.m. at Roberto’s Humboldt T’s rain or shine, proceeds around Garberville, down through Redway and then to the Riverwood Inn.

All are welcome, but please bring a brand new unwrapped toy, or two or three as your donation. The barbecue starts about noon or so, as does the music. There will also be a great raffle with lots of local donations.

The toys will be collected and taken for distribution to various families who have requested a little extra help this Christmas. When deciding on your purchase of a toy, remember that there are many older children who still like toys and new gifts for Christmas. Art supplies, books, games and puzzles are some suggestions for the pre-teen set.

Let’s make the 21st Toy Run the biggest and best ever.

If there are any questions regarding this event, please feel free to call Loreen at 943-1766.
