Peanut kid tap dances her way to win Kiwanis contest
BERWYN – If Olivia Verduzco can tap dance to “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” the Kiwanis Peanut Kid can surely tip toe through the houbys.
The 8-year-old, St. Leonard’s School student made a special appearance during the Berwyn/Cicero Houby Parade on Oct. 6, just one of her duties during her one-year reign as spokesperson for the Kiwanis Club’s annual Peanut Day fundraiser Sept. 27.
The Peanut Day Contest was held Aug. 15 at the Proksa Park Activity Center, under the direction of Peggy Rose Kwiatek of the Peggy Rose Academy of Dance and Acrobatics in Berwyn. Contestants were ages 6 to 8 and were judged on poise, personality, a question-and-answer session and talent. They also worked the runway by modeling party dresses.
