How to Become a Volun-DEER at HITV
Last year, in 2021, the Rotary Clubs of Westlake Village hosted the first-ever Holidays In The Village celebration. The event smashed records with dozens of artisan vendors, over 8,500 attendees, and countless volunteers helping out and making it an unforgettable European Village experience.
This year we expect the festivities and the fun to be even BIGGER — and so we are starting now with building our network of community volunteers (aka Volun-Deers!) to be a part of the magic.
