Thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers at the local relay centers in Plattsburgh, Westport and Saranac Lake.
In these difficult economic times, it is wonderful to see how our community responds to help children who are dealing with war, poverty, disease and famine around the world so they can experience joy this Christmas and in the year to come.

Operation Christmas Child
TO THE EDITOR: On behalf of Hospice of the North Country, I would like to thank all those who so graciously participated in our 2012 Light Up A Life campaign.
The Clinton County Board of Realtors held an auction in October 2012 to benefit Hospice and the Light Up A Life campaign. The event raised $11,609.55. We thank them for their continued support and efforts.
Thank you to Bob Garrow and Linda McClarigan and family for offering your thoughts and words to the 2012 Light Up A Life mailing piece this year. The narrative written about your loved ones truly symbolizes the Hospice philosophy. We were honored to have you both participate in this campaign.
We would like to thank Champlain Centre for allowing us to set up our display at the mall for the entire month of December. Thank you to Karen & Dan Hickey, Keith and Julie Rowe, Gary Nutt and Wendell’s Furniture for donating items for the prize raffle.
We extend a very heartfelt thank you to the volunteers who staffed the table at the mall. We had volunteers from several local businesses and organizations, including NBT Bank, Sam’s Club, PSUC Galilean Society, Girl Scouts, Century 21, Tahy Realty, PSUC Women’s Hockey, Kavanaugh Realty, Duley & Associates Real Estate, Clinton County Youth Court and Hospice of the North Country volunteers and staff.
