Eighth graders raise $1,200 for trip
With a rubber ducky race in Philipse Brook, the eighth-grade class at the Garrison School on April 29 raised more than $1,200 for an overnight trip to Boston. The ducks, each numbered, floated 75 yards down the brook near the Walter Hoving Home.
Supporters paid $5 to sponsor each duck with a chance at a $200 prize. It was won by Raymond O’Rourke, a 2014 graduate of the school, who donated his winnings to the class.
