READING PROGRAM — The Bayonne Elks Lodge 434 very happily executed the 2nd Annual Karen Minutella Reading Program. The Program donated the book Freckle Juice by Judy Blume to each 3rd grade Bayonne Student. Approximately 750 books were donated this year. Each third-grade class was read the book by its participating Elk members. This reading initiative was founded by Kenny Healey in the memory of his fiance Karen Minutella who was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident.
