Millbrook Middle School students Matthew Crean (Grade 8) & Julia Crean (Grade 7), and their mother Donna Hogancamp, were commended by the Dutchess County Legislature on September 9, 2019 as "Union Vale Neighbors Helping Neighbors!"  On August 17, 2019, prior to the arrival of first responders, Matthew, Julia and Donna rushed to try to put out flames at the Bocker home, where a plane had just crashed into the house.  The Dutchess County Legislature commended their quick response and selfless desire to help their neighbors during this horrible tragedy.  We also commend Matthew, Julia and Mrs. Hogancamp for their noble actions!
