TO THE EDITOR: Thanks to the rapidly growing interest in the North Country Honor Flight, we are expanding our schedule to four Honor Flights this year to serve our World War II veterans.
The May 18 flight is already full, but we have some seats remaining on our mid June flight and all seats available for our September and October flights. A few guardian spots are also still available for the June flight.
Please also take note our first fundraiser is Saturday, March 2, at the Cabin Fever Party hosted by the Keeseville Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1505.
Please call 834-1505 for details, dinner starts at 5 p.m., and many World War II vets will be present to meet everyone attending.
North Country Honor Flight
TO THE EDITOR: Once in a while, a coach comes along with all the right motivation and reason to coach area athletes, a person who is motivated by discipline, respect and whose sole purpose is to see area youths benefit and grow as a team and hopefully help establish and or enrich the district’s scholastic programs.
He accomplishes this not just for the present but for years to come. Although this district has many competent and respected coaches who consistently produce successful programs, this individual has consistently put his personal life aside while missing games and or events that his son maybe involved in.
This type of dedication is not seasonal or short term; he has done so and dedicated himself to coaching and or assist in coaching for the betterment of the program and area youths from all local districts and all ages in several sports year round, without misplaced motivation.
When a position becomes available in the future, it would be my position — and I’m sure I can speak for most of the parents who have had the pleasure of having him mentor their child throughout the years — that the district please strongly consider this person, based on his merit and dedication to area youths.
