Redmond Kiwanis Selling See’s Candy For Holidays

Kiwanians will be on hand for the tree lighting after the Christmas parade on Saturday after staffing the kiosk from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays for the next three weekends.

Redmond Kiwanis members will also venture to Bend for the tree lighting at Northwest Crossing on Nov. 30. Other Redmond events covered will include the chamber’s coffee clatter on Friday, Dec. 1, at Wild Ride and the First Friday Art Walk that evening at the Harcourt’s Real Estate Office, and again the next day at the Sip and Shop at Wild Ride Brewing. See’s Candy is available in a variety of combinations for $29 per pound. Some assortments start at $11.
