Kurn Hattin Celebrates Its Volunteers
Westminster, VT – Just in time for Volunteer Recognition Day, Kurn Hattin Homes held its Annual Volunteer Recognition Banquet on March 26th to honor the many people who volunteer at the Homes. The team of dedicated volunteers helps with governance, school, sports, music and special events.
Volunteering is quite often the high point of a volunteer’s day and children truly appreciate having someone take a special interest in them. Kurn Hattin is very fortunate to have over one hundred volunteers who dedicate their time, talent and care for the children in a variety of programs. Their positive impact on campus is huge. Gandhi wrote ‘You must be the change you wish to see in the world.’ Our volunteers help make that change happen one child at a time.
Every year, the Kurn Hattin volunteers are recognized at a special dinner in their honor. Honored this year were: Bill Abbott, David Adams, Laurie Alberts, Donna Aldrich, Danny Bacigalupo, David Baldasaro, Jerry L. Bardwell, Julie Barry, Mildred Barry, Carol Bazin, Diane Bazin, Jeff Bianconi, Sue Bingaman, Carolyn Blake-Deyo, John Bohannon, Bill & Barbara Brackett, Carol Brennan-Johnson, Gordon Bristol, Donald Campbell, Gary Carrier, Fran Cheslock, Edward Clark, Sheriff Keith Clark, Gary Cobb, Pat Crotty, Vincent Cutrona, Marion Daley, Jamie Dansereau, Elizabeth David, Mary Davis, Edward Dinnany, Tim Eno, Tom & Donna Fahner, Carol Failla, Deborah Fajans Michael Fawcett, Sarah Fonseca, Justin & Shannon Fuller, Shari Gladman, Chris Goding, Father Lance W.
