Chanhassen Evening Rotary Club members recently delivered their annual Christmas gift bags for 18 Carver County veterans and their families. Members contacted local businesses and received many vouchers for family activities and holiday food items.


Families received full turkey dinners from Chanhassen Lunds & Byerlys, family movie packs from The Chanhassen Movie Theater, gift certificates from Culvers, and a dinner and performance of Camelot from Chanhassen Dinner Theatres.


Families with young children received a day pass for the Crayola Experience at the Mall of America. The feast was rounded out with morning baked goods donated by Haley Pemrick and a bottle of wine or apple cider donated by The Vintage of Chanhassen. Bags were delivered through the Carver County Veterans Services the week of Dec. 19.
