The Leinen family wanted families to be able to enjoy celebrating New Year’s Eve together with other families. They sponsored a New Year’s Eve party at the Rutland Town Hall with lots of food, karaoke, games, dancing, hats and noisemakers. All they asked was a free will offering to help defray some of the expense. This isn’t the first event the Leinen’s have organized. They have sponsored the annual Easter Egg hunt for many years giving away a boys and girls bicycle each year, in addition to lots of candy and other small prizes. They’ve also held kite flying contests. Jerry and Jeanne and their family are avid supporters of family fun.
