On May 26, the Wappinger Elks Lodge held it's Annual Student of the Month Awards Dinner at the Lodge.   36 students were awarded certificates as "Students of the Month". (That is: 9 students each from John Jay and RC Ketcham High Schools, and Van Wyck and Wappingers Junior High Schools.) Each student was accompanied by his or her immediate family. Also there to assist in presenting the awards were the principals, teachers, and staff of the schools. Dr. James Parla, Superintendant of Wappinger Central School District, who is a member of Wappinger Elks Lodge #2609, was present to assist in presenting the awards as well.  There were about 160 students, family, educators, and Elks present for the awards dinner. 

Thank you to our kitchen and dining room volunteers who worked to make this a very special night for our community.
