On Friday, St. Patrick School celebrated the 5th Annual Dorothy Spedoski Day of Service. The event is named for a beloved St. Patrick parishioner who was known for her kindness and commitment to service. When she passed away, her family established a scholarship in her name. Each year, it goes to a St. Patrick student who exemplifies Dorothy’s spirit. The scholarship ceremony is paired with a day of service in which students participate in a variety of community projects. This year’s scholarship winner is 6th grader Bethany Stahlin, shown here with members of Dorothy Spedoski’s family.
