Hope Rural School visits Monterey

On the morning of December 3rd, the Monterey Yacht Club was invaded by about twenty little kindergartens all dressed in unique holiday costumes Accompanied by their teachers from the Hope Rural School, the kindergarteners proceeded to sing a collection of songs with appropriate gestures to the delight of the Monterey audience.

The children’s visit, an annual event, started 20 years ago by Ann Burns who was present for this anniversary occasion. Of course, we had a surprise visit from Santa Claus, who just happened to have a bag of presents to distribute, as he chatted with the children one by one following their musical performance.

Refreshments, home-baked Christmas goodies provided by some of Monterey’s most talented bakers, are also a regular feature, and those in attendance did not hesitate to join in the line going down the table, attended by servers in red shirts, to spark up their coffee with cookies and cake.

Altogether this occasion kicks off the holiday season in a joyous, lighthearted manner to the great delight of the Monterey community.
