|The children adore our musician, Yasko Kubota, who plays at most of these events.|
|The Marines came to collect all of the Toys for Tots which we collected in "payment" of the children's "tea" price.|
I hope you enjoy seeing yet another family event that we host here at the Hawthorne Hotel. This event is done for our customers' children and grandchildren, and for children in the area who are less fortunate, to collect Toys for Tots each year. It is just a small part of the donations we make to our community here on the North Shore of Massachusetts.
