On June 12, the Herkimer Elementary School Kindergarten Class of 1991 hosted a 30th anniversary for the current elementary building. As the first class to start at the “new” school in 1991, they planted seven trees at the end of their time at HES.
Those same students returned and planted a new evergreen tree at the entrance of the school. They were joined by five kindergarten teachers that were at the building in its first year, staff, past and current teachers, and parents to celebrate.
Sponsors include Jill Rae Signs/Easels on the Gogh, Humphrey Memorials, Yetty’s Pizzeria, Geraty Pools & Spa, Greater Herkimer Lions Club, Revelations Salon & Spa, Mohawk Valley Community Market, Memoirize, Licari Motor Car, Herkimer Fire Department, George Aney Law Firm, Dancenter, Hummel’s Office Plus, Herkimer Veterinary Associates, Dominick’s Deli, and Collis Hardware. The organizers also wanted to gives thanks to Scott Healy and Dave Lee of the New York Department of Environmental Conservation and the Colonel William F. Fox Memorial Saratoga Tree Nursery for donating tree saplings.
