Santa Claus (Woodinville police officer Kent Baxter) showed his moves Dec. 12 as he skated with area residents at the annual Santa Skate event held at the Kingsgate Ice Arena. The free event featured live music and a chance to meet and skate with the Jolly Old Elf himself. Santa Skate is sponsored by Woodinville Parks & Recreation in cooperation with the Sno-King Amateur Hockey Association.
The beneficiaries of this year's Community Involvement Week include Kindering Center, Friends of Youth, Multi-Service Center, Youth Eastside Services, and Big Brothers and Big Sisters. The five non-profits each spent a day in the restaurants handing out brochures, talking to guests and generally making the public aware of their organization's role within the community.

Santa Claus (John McMahon) arrived with Mrs. Claus (Helen McMahon) last Saturday at the Woodinville Lions Club on a Woodinville Fire & Life Safety truck.
To continue the support Wellington offers to the Multi-Service Center, a group of parents and teachers will volunteer their time on December 20th and 21st. These volunteers will assist in the MSC "Gift Room", which distributes all of the donated gifts to the families that are supported by the MSC.
