Congratulations, Savoit Honorees!

Thanks to all those who attended the The Helen Savoit Award dinner this past Saturday at St. Rocco Society. Marcia Frahman was awarded the 8th Annual Helen Savoit Award for Library Advocacy in recognition of her many years volunteering for the Howland Public Library. Justice McCray also received the Savoit Education Gift in recognition for his outstanding service as the library's tech-assistant. At the event, Beacon Ward 3 Council-Member Pam Wetherbee also presented Marcia and Justice with certificates of recognition from New York State Senator Sue Serino and New York State Assemblyman Frank Skartados. It was a wonderful evening. Thanks to all the individuals and business owners who donated to the Savoit Fund.
