The Fort Fairfield Rotary Club held its annual “Christmas with the Students” program at the local high school Wednesday, December 12th. This traditional program was started over 15 years ago as a time for Rotarians, and school staff and students, to get together during the holiday season. The program highlight is when the club members collect “happy dollars” which are then presented to the school staff to purchase warm clothing such as gloves, mittens, caps, and the like for elementary school students who may have need for these warm wintertime items.

As part of the club program the high school choral group, led by Mari-Jo Hedman, offered seasonal music and the Rotary club members joined in on sing-along pieces. In attendance from the Fort Fairfield school system were Marc Gendron, Superintendent, Tanya Belanger, High School Principal, and Sue Parks, Elementary School Principal. The school’s Students Baking-a-Living class and Judy Saucier, Cafeteria provided a delicious breakfast meal.
