The Town of Wallkill Boys & Girls Club of Wallkill NY hosted on November 12th their annual “Grown Here” farm-to-table dining experience. This dining event features dishes made by 4 local chefs. They cooked using ingredients grown or produced locally. Local wines, craft beers, and spirits were also served.
Sherry Li, CEO of Thompson Education Center, was a sponsor of the event, especially for the “rare and unique” wine auction, which was hosted by Dr. David Ainbinder. Sherry commented, “It is such a pleasure to support and attend the events hosted by our Boys & Girls Club. Not only do we have a great time together but all of the proceeds go towards the children. It’s a win-win for our community.”

In addition there will be a faculty housing, a college Inn, a college library, museums, an art center, a student conference center and an indoor/outdoor recreational facility including playgrounds and a stadium.
Currently, Thompson Education Center has entered into agreements and signed letter of interests with high schools, colleges, education institutions and systems both in U.S. and China, each of them will provide a great number of students to Thompson Education Center.
