Adopt-A-Cottage Sponsors Get Involved at Kurn Hattin

"If you could wake up tomorrow with one new talent or ability, what would it be and why?" was one of several questions both adults and children queried on Adopt-a-Cottage Sponsor Night, September 6, 2018 at Kurn Hattin Homes for Children. 

Individuals, club and business members, joined their 'adopted' children's residences (cottages) for a fun icebreaker activity, a delicious dinner, and a cottage tour after having previously donated funds to supply their cottages with needed items, such as new curtains, bedding, and mattresses. The Adopt-a-Cottage program provides the sponsors a special opportunity to not only support Kurn Hattin, but also have fun and spend time getting to know the children. 

Fit Body Boot Camp Treats Kurn Hattin Homes

Lisa Dumont owner of Fit Body Boot Camp presented a check for $600 which she raised at her gym in Westminster, Vermont for the Kurn Hattin children to enjoy ice cream sundaes at Dari Joy in Bellows Falls. Thinking ahead, Co-Assistant Residential Director Carol Bazin contacted Dari Joy and placed the children’s specific orders ahead of time. When the children arrived in bus loads, the distribution of sundaes went quickly and smoothly. Pictured accepting the donation are Kurn Hattin Executive Director Stephen Harrison, Residential Co-Director Carol Bazin, and Fit Body Boot Camp owner, Lisa Dumont, and some of the children waiting for their sundaes.
