A Bountiful Kurn Hattin Christmas
The Christmas season is a very special time at Kurn Hattin Homes for Children. In November, the children selected Christmas trees donated by Christmas Trees of Vermont. The trees were placed around the campus and decorated with traditional and handmade ornaments. Santa Claus was seen several times this year in Bellows Falls and at the Kurn Hattin cottages. Chester Rotary Club came along with Mr. and Mrs. Claus and The Grinch to deliver gifts to all our residents. Vermont Academy students hosted the children for a Christmas dinner. Keene Elm City Rotary club and Savings Bank of Walpole both visited the cottages they sponsor through Adopt-A-Cottage. Walgreens employees came to stuff stockings full of items donated by their generous customers.
Caroling in the nearby community took place and was reciprocated by Landmark College students caroling on the Kurn Hattin campus. The Select choir took a trip to Burlington to perform. Two holiday events were performed this year by our students at the Mayo school. The children participated in a Night of Giving dinner to take pride in what they have given back to the community. The children and staff at Kurn Hattin would like to wish each of our friends, supporters, and families a bright and merry Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
