1942 Farmall Model H Restored
An abandoned 1942 Farmall Model H tractor, originally used at Kurn Hattin Homes and repurchased, has been lovingly restored. A ten-year project led by Real Bazin, Director of Farm & Fleet, and assisted by the KHH maintenance department and local resident Gary Cobb, sits proudly on the front lawn of Kurn Hattin’s Mathey Center. Real reflected, "It was great that we were able to find it and bring it home.” Look for the tractor in the 4th of July Saxtons River parade.
Key Bank Hosts Kurn Hattin Historical Exhibit
An exhibit commemorating the 125th anniversary of the founding of Kurn Hattin Homes for Children is on display at Key Bank on Main Street in Brattleboro, Vermont.
The 11-panel exhibit, A Legacy of Caring: Adapting to the changing needs of children and families, featuring a curated selection of photos and documents from Kurn Hattin Homes’ archives, dating from the late 1800s through the present is being displayed throughout the region with its first stop at the Brattleboro Key Bank. The exhibit tells the story of Kurn Hattin’s founding and development within the context of major events in Vermont and U.S. history, as well as the significant trends in the fields of child care, education, and social services since the turn of the 19th century that have helped to shape the organization’s philosophy and approach.
It's Sugar Season at Kurn Hattin
The cold temps caused Kurn Hattin Homes to get a late start in maple sugaring this year. All students help in the sugaring process. Pictured are farm managers Real Bazin and Conor Fitzgerald with some of our youngest helpers. End result? An appreciation of where real food comes from, and pancakes with syrup they helped make!
