A Day of Service and Remembrance

September 11, 2001 was a very tragic day in our nation's history. Yet out of this tragedy grew an inspiring tradition of engaging in charitable service as a forward-looking tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors, and those who rose up in response to the attacks. At Dryden, families paid tribute in a patriotic sing along with music teacher Mr. Deptula by the flagpole during the morning arrival.

Later that evening at the Board of Education meeting, we recognized Eagle Scout Ian H. for his wonderful leadership and community service for enhancing an outdoor learning space for the children and teachers at Dryden Elementary School.

It is caring people, like Ian and Mr. Deptula, who build a better a community by serving others through their talents. They fill us with hope for a brighter future and a more peaceful world!
