Hillel Academy of Broome County will hold its annual Journal Brunch on Sunday, May 22, from 11 am-3 pm. The event will be held outdoors at Temple Israel. Diane Stento from Danielle House will be honored with the Theodore Sommer Community Service Award and Brian Savitch will receive the A.M. Pierson Award. The deadline for journal ads is Sunday, May 1.
There are three ways to submit an ad to the journal: anyone who has received an e-mail with attachments about the journal and brunch can fill out the information on the PDF and scan the Venmo QR Code to pay for the ad. A second option is to print out the PDF, fill it out and mail, or drop off, the ad along with a donation. Those who don’t have the e-mail can mail back the invitation that is coming in regular mail with their ad and donation. For answers to questions or to receive more information, call 304-4544 and leave a message with a name and phone number.
“It is with great honor that Hillel Academy proudly recognizes with respect and admiration the dedication that Brian Savitch and Diane Stento have in the Greater Binghamton community,” said journal organizers. “Their efforts have enriched the lives of our county and our students will forever enrich the world. Thank you Brian Savitch and Diane Stento for everything that you do for the people in Broome County.
“Brian, you are a pioneer of Hillel Academy’s Annual Journal. You have put your heart and soul into our school for many, many years and we are forever grateful to you,” organizers added.
Organizers continued, “Diane, what began as a one-time community service project at the Danielle House evolved into a beautiful friendship between our students and your organization. Thank you so much for allowing the children of Hillel Academy to learn the importance of community service, and thank you for allowing our school to honor you this year.”
