Wayne Bank Supports the Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary

Honesdale, PA – Lewis J Critelli, President and Chief Executive Officer of Wayne Bank, is pleased to announce that the Bank will support the Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary with a donation through the Educational Improvement Organization Program in 2018.

Program Coordinator, Henry J. Loftus, Jr., and Trustees, Judith Ann Mortensen and Donna LaBar, accepted a check in the amount of $10,000.00 from Mr. Critelli.

The gift was made possible as a result of the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program offered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, acting through the Department of Community and Economic Development.

“Wayne Bank is proud to provide support to the Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary through the EITC program this year,” stated Mr. Critelli. “The Sanctuary and its Glass Museum are an important part of Wayne County. We are so pleased that this contribution will aid in the continuation of their valuable educational programs for local students and their dedication to the preservation of our local history.”

This contribution will benefit two innovative educational programs at the Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary’s Dorflinger Glass Museum. The first program is a Local History of Northeastern Pennsylvania Tour, where elementary students learn about White Mills, canal transportation, glass making, and life in the 19th century from high school students, serving as guides. Approximately 500 local students have participated in this tour annually during previous years. The second program, in partnership with Keystone College, is a mobile glass blowing studio that travels to local schools to teach science through glass making. Since October of 2016, more than 8,000 students have attended these 40 minute demonstrations, which are conducted by students form the College’s glass blowing program. Demonstrations are focused on topics including material science, stress in materials, centrifugal force, electrical conductivity, and more. The furnace, designed by Keystone College Professor, Jim Harmon, is one of only a few like it in the country.
