Each year just around Christmas time, the Chester Rotary Club provides a special treat for the Children at the Kurn Hattin Homes in Westminster.
The Chester Rotary Club members, with the help of Santa, provide gifts for the students in grades 1 through 8. Each gift is individually labeled and is based on the wishes of the named child.
Santa and Mrs. Claus, with the Grinch carefully in tow along with a few of the Rotary "Elves", make their way to the cottages of the Kurn Hattin children.
There, Santa and Mrs. Claus distribute the gifts to the children. However, they also keep a sharp eye on the Grinch to be sure he does not slip back to his devious ways by trying to steal some of the presents.
The generosity of the people of the Southern Vermont area in supporting this effort make a happy Christmas for these deserving children.
Fran Cheslock, the Chester Rotary Club Secretary said, "We would like to thank the community members, Kurn Hattin staff and the Rotary members who helped make this happy event happen".
