VFW awards DEC scholarships

At the May 14 meeting of the Red Hook Town Board, Commander William Moore of VFW Post 7765 introduced Hanlon Crane and Helena O’Shea, who were awarded scholarships to a one-week state Department of Environmental Conservation Environmental Education Summer Camp.

This was the 27th year that the scholarship sponsored by Red Hook VFW Post 7765 and administered by the Town of Red Hook Conservation Advisory Council (CAC) was awarded to Red Hook students between the ages of 11 and 13.

The camp is sponsored by and staffed by the state DEC. Activities combine recreational events, such as hiking and canoeing, with instruction on ecosystems and resources.

Correction: The print version of this story incorrectly identified Helena O’Shea as Helena Crane.
