On Tuesday, students of the Career and Technical Education (CTE) program, a division of BOCES, supported their community by preparing Thanksgiving meal baskets for those in need at the F. Donald Myers Education Center in Saratoga Springs. The bags will be delivered by members of the Saratoga Wilton Kiwanis Club to local individuals, families, seniors and homeless shelters. BOCES culinary arts instructor Chef Maureen A. Clancy, CEC, CCE, led the young culinary students, who are also members of the BOCES Key Club.
