My favorite service event was Viva Bike Vegas. Supporting the bikers felt meaningful and to see people hug me and others as a thank you made me feel happy and giving. It was very cold but I enjoyed the picture stands. I also left with 100 bags of pop chips, so it was great!�


During this year, what was your favorite service event and why?

It would have to be the Breast Cancer Walk. We did lots of work and we were able to bond with Circle K and the Las Vegas Youth Kiwanis! It was great hanging out with Valley Key Club too.�
