Every September for the past several years, South Fallsburg’s Order of the Eastern Star Starlight Chapter No. 74 and Bethany Lodge 101 have generously donated school supplies and warm clothing for the children at Benjamin Cosor Elementary School. On September 26, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Ivan Katz and BCES Principal Mary Kate Stinehour received the crayons, backpacks, writing and drawing paper, and hats and gloves from Ms. Mattie Anderson, Ms. Jeanetta Hutchinson, and Ms. Pamela Kennedy.
Dr. Katz thanked the donors with the following words: “As Superintendent of Schools I am very proud to work with a community minded group like this who supports our school district and the children in it. Having additional resources that we can share with children is a wonderful thing. I owe a debt of gratitude to this group for making Fallsburg's children a priority.”
