Indoor and outdoor winter fun to be had at RRMC, as Winter Fest continues

Friday, Feb. 23, 4 p.m.—RUTLAND—Rutland Regional Medical Center (RRMC) will be transformed into a winter wonderland on Friday, Feb. 23. As part of the 2018 Winter Fest weeklong celebration, RRMC staff and volunteers will host Indoor and Outdoor Winter Fun from 4-8 p.m. in the CVPS/Leahy Community Health Education Center. This free, fun, family friendly event will include a Teddy Bear Clinic in partnership with Community Health Centers of the Rutland Region (CHCRR), arts and crafts, cookie decorating, puppet shows by Wonderfeet Kid’s Museum, DJ dance party, photo booths, prizes and giveaways, indoor and outdoor games, and snow sculpture, with pizza and hot chocolate served throughout the evening.

Children and adults are encouraged to come dressed in warm clothing with the ability to peel off layers for the indoor activities. Children are welcome to bring their favorite teddy bear or other stuffed animal to be examined by the caring CHCRR staff at the Teddy Bear Clinic. Tired, sick, and bruised bears and other stuffed animals will be diagnosed, bandaged up, and sent home with prescriptions for TLC.

In additional to the myriad of activities, RRMC will be giving away a variety of family-themed baskets throughout the evening, with a drawing every 15 minutes.

Guests for the event should park in the RRMC employee parking lot and follow the signs to the event. Outdoor activities will be held on the hospital grounds right outside the CVPS/Leahy Community Health Education Center, and indoor events can be accessed inside the Leahy Center entrance.
