The Plymouth Kiwanis Club recently held its annual Christmas party at the Shawnee Room of Happy Pizza in Plymouth. The club hosted members of the Mountain Top, Tunkhannock and Wilkes-Barre Kiwanis Clubs. The attendees enjoyed a cocktail hour, a holiday dinner, and entertainment provided by the holiday choir of the Wyoming Valley West High School under the direction of Choir Director Cody Messersmith.
