Levittown Honors Exceptional Community Members
Levittown community volunteers gathered in the Levittown Memorial Education Center's gymnasium on March 1 for the 22nd annual Recognition Night for Community Service, hosted by the Levittown Public Schools. A member from each organization was honored for their role in making Levittown a better place.
The gymnasium was decorated in Levittown spirit with red, white and blue balloons and entertainment was provided by Division Avenue High School chorus students and General Douglas MacArthur High School's acapella group, MacApella. Attendees enjoyed a dinner that was prepared and served by the culinary and food service students enrolled in the Gerald R. Claps Career and Technical Center's culinary program.
Before the recognitions took place, Assistant Superintendent of Instruction Todd Winch spoke about the power of community and how each honoree is a valuable member of Levittown.
"With a community of over 50,000 individuals, it requires a lot of people to step up and play active roles working together to make our community the best that it can be," said Winch.
