The weekend, the community threw a celebration which included a parade with current and former Cherry Lane Students, along with a flag raising ceremony with plenty of dignitaries. There were free games and activities for the kids, along with a barbecue dinner provided by Bobby Q's Smokehouse of Suffern.
