Some of the area’s best young talent played to a packed house for a fundraiser at the Philipstown.info last Saturday evening, May 14.  The event raised money to support the Pride of Philipstown – Destination Imagination Team.  Destination Imagination is a worldwide problem solving organization.

For our local team, it is an exhilarating after-school activity in which students work in teams to solve mind-bending challenges and present their solutions at tournaments.  At the end of May, the Haldane team is going to Global Finals, (which they’ve won before), in Nashville.
