The North Salem Lions Club awarded seven North Salem graduates a Community Service Award in 2023.

The monetary awards (totaling $6,000) were allocated and presented at their 2023 respective graduations. All seven recipients are residents of North Salem, although they attend different high schools. This year’s recipients were

Amanda Costas (NSHS)

Rosie Binette (NSHS)

Melanie Cotrone (NSHS)

Cecilia DeLarco (Kennedy Catholic)

Gavin Smith (Archbishop Stepinac)

Julia Russo (NSHS) and

Samantha Vilkelis (NSHS)

 The Lions are very proud of these young people for their accomplishments, and we wish them a happy future. Learning through volunteering is an important part of a young person’s education. Our community certainly appreciates the efforts of our young people on our behalf.
