While The Kids on the Block NEVER go out on a school night, marching in the annual Parade of Lights at Broadway Plaza, in Walnut Creek on December 5th. allowed for an exception. Huddled together to brave near freezing temperatures, Assistance League® of Diablo Valley member volunteer Arlita Smith (l), puppet Renaldo Rodriguez, The Kids on the Block chairman Linda Patton (c), Melody James, Margie Basile (r), President, as well as Clare Sanchez were "on hand" to wave to bystanders, help distribute candy, and answer questions about their educational performances to elementary schoolchildren. As a veteran organization of both the local and philanthropic communities, Assistance League of Diablo Valley has become part of this well attended tradition that includes festive music, flashy cars, a visit from Santa, and a Christmas tree lighting.
