From Event Committee
It’s already November and the holiday season is upon us. The Christmas Pageant in December and the Mochi Making Event in January are two of KNI's three main events. The Events Committee is already starting to prepare for these two events. We will soon be sending out emails to all guardians regarding volunteer assignments and donation collection.
We have a few favors to ask of everyone. We are currently collecting donations for refreshments that will be served on the day of the Christmas Pageant. Last year, the baked goods donations were very popular with those that attended the Christmas Pageant. For those that can donate or know of businesses that are willing to donate baked goods, please reach out to the Christmas Committee at email@example.com. Together with the guardians, we are looking forward to creating a memorable event.

Thank you very much for your contribution!
