May is National Youth Month within the Elks, so, to celebrate their recent NY state basketball win, Kinderhook Elks invited Ichabod Crane boys basketball team, their families, and coaches to a celebratory dinner at the Lodge. Members of the Valatie town board were there to read a proclamation. Coach Will Ferguson cut the cake.

Kinderhook Elks hosted the Easter Bunny in the Kinderhook Village Square on Saturday. In addition to meeting the Easter Bunny, kids were treated to candy, ice cream (generously donated by Stewarts) and free entry into a raffle for one of three plush bunnies.

The Easter Bunny joined us for breakfast. This is a popular, annual event that fills the breakfast dining room with families. Kids have their photo taken with the bunny, who then hands out small bags of candy.
