November 17, 2014 (Santee)--The Santee Kiwanis hosted a "Road Side Pride" event in conjunction with the West Hills High School Key Club.  The high school kids were out at 9:00 a.m. on Woodside Avenue on the Santee/Lakeside borderline cleaning up trash on Saturday, November 15th.

The local Key Club is a part of the CAL-NEV-HA District Key Club International.  Scholarships, teaching leadership skills, and community involvement are all aspects of this club's mission.

The Road Side Pride is a great program to teach kids about volunteering in their community and taking pride in their own communities.  Last year Santana High School's Key Club members participated in this program.  The kids, dressed appropriately in colorful vests, guided by an adult, and  carrying trash bags also used the proper tools for picking up the trash as is seen in the pictures. Another part of doing the job safely and properly.

The high school kids definitely made one road side area proud -- no more trash.
