Kids Korps/Teen Korps held its annual Kick-Off Celebration and Presidential Service Award Recognition event Sept. 30 at Oak Crest Park in Encinitas.

The event featured food, music, games and a recognition event which recognized Kids Korps/Teen Korps volunteers who have earned the Presidential Service Award for Community Service.
