The Bay Village VFW Christmas Social was held at the Bay Lodge on Dec 13. The event was aided by more than 25 volunteers from the Bay High School Key Club. In January, VFW Christmas Social Chair Debbie Green presented a $75 donation from VFW Post 9693 to acknowledge the exceptional assistance provided by the Key Club at the event. The check was presented to Mrs. Anita Bauknecht, Key Club advisor.

There were many challenges addressed by the Key Club that evening. With an unknown schedule conflict with the adjacent church, parking was scarce and potentially dangerous for many of the VFW members and guests. The Key Club volunteers assisted members from their cars to the building, they served food and assisted the elderly with their plates, they provided coffee and drinks, and they helped clean and re-store the furniture and load the materials.

All of the students were professional and respectful and represented their school, family, and themselves with pride. We could not have done this without their help. You can say they were KEY to a successful Christmas Party for our veterans.
