Mechanicville City School District Campus Sign

Recently, the Mechanicville City School District honored the Alonzo Family for their very generous donation of a school sign.

The District would like to acknowledge the outstanding efforts of Jay Haney, Nick and Matt Dunn,  Jarrad Garone,  Doc and Gus Burrello, and Bob LaVigna, who also played an integral part  in bringing the project to fruition.

Along with the donation made by the Alonzo Family, through the efforts of these various individuals, all coming together for one purpose, volunteering their time and sharing their own special talents, the Mechanicville City School District was the beneficiary of a new school sign which has greatly enhanced the entrance to our campus.  We wish to thank each and every one of you for the part you played in this wonderful community project.
