The subject of the essay was, “What Does the Pledge of Allegiance Mean to Me”. Students from the fifth, sixth and seventh grades at Bordentown Regional Middle School and the MacFarland School were invited to participate.

The winners were Clayton Devlin, Christopher Borges, Nikolas Romano, Lucas Schuck, Nicholas Cutrupi, Maranatha Paul and Michael Lindsey. Each winner received a framed certificate, a $25 Visa gift card, a Heritage Corner Kit of parchment documents such as the Declaration of Independence, a flag and patriotic balloons.

The Elks wish to thank Dick Langan, and his wife Joan, for coordinating and completing another great essay contest.
