The Mount Vernon Players came to Kenyon on Dec. 14, 2010, to spread holiday cheer at the College Bookstore. The Players read four classic Christmas stories out loud to local children – and even to some Kenyon students. At 3:00 p.m., Santa arrived to grant Christmas wishes and take pictures with the children. Associate Professor of Physics Paula Turner and daughter Samantha Turner ’10 came to read and assisted with the snowflake-making activity. Professor Turner, a member of the Mount Vernon Players, said she loves to help out with events that bring members of the Gambier community and Kenyon students together. Many Kenyon students did, in fact, attend the event, perhaps for the free cookies or the nostalgia evoked by a man dressed up as Santa and reading Christmas stories.
