This weekend, members of the Kiwanis of Lafayette and spouses and children arrived at the Pinhook Walmart early Saturday to participate in our annual Christmas Project - Operation Magi.
With the assistance of the Lafayette Parish School Board, 24 needy children were brought to Walmart to shop for Christmas presents. It is for many of us a reminder of the meaning of giving during the busy holiday season. This year's Magi was no different.
While we were grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these children, there is no question that their joy and good cheer made an impact on those of us who participated.
