The Newberry Rotary Club Has Welcomed Thornwell For More Than 45 Years
Our elementary school-aged children met Santa Claus during the Newberry Rotary Club Christmas Party on December 9. The Newberry Rotary Club has welcomed Thornwell children to the annual event for more than 45 years.
“We’re happy to continue this tradition for the children at Thornwell,” said Scott Cain, president of the Newberry Rotary Club. “The program is a wonderful way to kick off the Christmas season and give back to the community.”
Children received gifts from the Rotary Club and met with Santa during the event held at Central United Methodist Church in Newberry, SC. Thornwell children, along with children from Boys’ Farm in Newberry, had lunch with Rotary Club members. The Little Mountain Elementary School chorus sang holiday favorites including “Jingle Bells” and others.
