HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - On Monday, June 18, over 130 Hasbrouck Heights High School seniors and faculty arrived at the Hasbrouck Heights Elks Lodge #1962 for the annual Yearbook Signing Breakfast.  In its 15th year, the annual breakfast started in 2004 when Lodge Secretary Joyce Powell, a member of the Hasbrouck Heights High School Class of 1978, contacted high school teacher and class advisor Erin Schneeweiss and volunteered to provide the graduating class with a yearbook signing breakfast to kick-off Senior Week.  

Members of the Hasbrouck Heights Elks Lodge arrived early in the morning to prepare a breakfast for the students and staff, which included bacon, eggs, and bagels. After breakfast, the yearbooks were handed out and students spend the rest of the morning signing each other’s books. 

This year the Hasbrouck Heights Elks Lodge also presented Alyssa Volpe and Marianna Squeo with $250 scholarship checks.   Volpe plans on majoring in occupational therapy for children with disabilities and Squeo will be majoring in Special Education. The lodge scholarship is presented to a student(s) that will be planning to assist children with developmental or occupational disabilities. The State Major Project for the New Jersey State Elks Association is assisting special needs children.
