Eight children of East Hampton Village employees have gotten a pleasant surprise gift as the new college season approaches — each is getting $750 tuition aid grants.

The gift was approved last week by the East Hampton Village board.

After the unanimous vote, Mayor Paul F. Rickenbach Jr. explained that no taxpayer money was involved in the gift. It was, he said, a donation made by an anonymous village resident who “wanted to do something” for his village.
