Recognized for Community Service
March 17, 2015

Recognized for Community Service 001Levittown community volunteers gathered in the Levittown Memorial Education Center's Panther Room for the 19th annual Recognition Night for Community Service, where a member from each organization was honored for their tireless efforts to make Levittown a better place. The event was hosted by the Levittown School District, and dinner was prepared and served by the culinary and food service students enrolled in the Gerald R. Claps Career and Technical Center's culinary program.

Assistant Superintendent for Instruction Debbie Rifkin said this year's event was the largest ever, and despite Levittown's population of more than 50,000 residents, it remains a close-knit community. She said. "All of you being honored have gone above and beyond the call of duty and without your services, Levittown would not be the community it is today."
