GANSEVOORT – On Friday, Nov. 17, the Saratoga-Wilton Elks Lodge #161 Americanism Committee visited Ballard Road Elementary School. 

Exalted Ruler Debbie McCabe accompanied Susan and Dave Waghorn to help distribute 90 dictionaries to students in the four 3rd grade classrooms. The dictionaries were well received by the students. Thirty additional copies were donated to the school’s “Back Pack” program.

This year, in addition to searching for the longest word, the students were asked to look up the words “Thanksgiving,” “Pilgrim” and “Turkey,” given the Thanksgiving holiday. One student even shared a “Turkey Call” with the class.
