March 25, 2011 | Westminster, Vermont– Kurn Hattin Homes held its Annual Volunteer Recognition Banquet on March 22 to honor the many people who volunteer at the Homes.
The team of dedicated volunteers helps with school, sports, music and special events.
Volunteering is quite often the high point of the volunteers’ day. The children know that they are fortunate to have someone interested in them. “Volunteers offer so much individual support and positive adult interaction for our children,” says Tom Fahner, Director of Educational and Residential Services, “We couldn’t do what we do without our volunteers. Some programs just wouldn’t exist without them.”
Every year, the Kurn Hattin volunteers are recognized at a special dinner in their honor. Hats off to all of you who volunteer at Kurn Hattin Homes.
