With more than 300 motorcycles that participated in the parade and then the barbecue at American Legion 1619 in West Plattsburgh, our fundraiser was once again a great success.Thanks to all the fire departments for your exceptional coverage at all the major intersections, the New York State Police, Plattsburgh City Police and Clinton County Sheriff’s Department. Without you, we could not have had such a safe ride.
Thanks to the City of Plattsburgh for allowing us to use the Crete Center as our starting point. And thanks to all the volunteers and the American Legion Riders & H.O.G. Chapter.
A special thank-you to American Legion Post 1619, for without all you, we could not have had such a great event.

TO THE EDITOR: In 2009, Congress designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with helping to support this effort across the country.
The National Day of Service and Remembrance established the inspiring tradition of Americans engaging in charitable service on 9/11 as an annual and forward-looking tribute to the victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks.
The North Country Regional Volunteer Center located at the United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. held a food drive in conjunction with Adirondack Community Action Program, ComLinks Community Action Program, Family Champions of the North Country and the Joint Council for Economic Opportunity.
The food drive was a success. A couple hundred food items were donated by concerned residents through workplace collections and individual givers.
A colossal thank you goes out to all the citizens who contributed to the success of the 9/11 food drive. The generous outpouring of support is what makes our region a community.
