The ABC Club

In 1991, following a rejected budget, the Penn Yan Board of Education again declared an austerity budget.  Almost immediately, a group, The ABC Club (Activities Booster Club) was formed to support extracurricular activities offered by the District for the 1991-92 school year.  According to the Chronicle Express, membership numbered around 250.  Elected to leadership roles were Bob Church, President, Bruce Hansen, VP, Ruth Bouchard, Secretary, and Steve Marchionda, Treasurer. Through donations by families and businesses and the work of hundreds of students, parents and friends on a variety of fundraisers, the ABC Club made three payments to the PYCSD for a total of almost $75,000!
