Tournament support

TO THE EDITOR: I am writing on behalf of the Third Age Adult Day programs in Elizabethtown and Saranac Lake to extend my thanks and appreciation to the second-annual Alzheimer’s Basketball Tournament.

Proceeds from the tournament were donated to the Third Age programs in Essex County.

Third Age is a supervised social day program that offers services to elderly residents in our communities. It provides a safe, secure place where older citizens can come for socialization. The program also provides respite for the caregiver.

The donations received from the tournament will help us to continue providing services to older residents in our communities.

I would also like to extend a big thank-you to both Paul Buehler and John Konowitz for all of their efforts in organizing the tournament. The tournament aided in getting information out to the public on services available for aging family members.

A thank-you as well as to the many businesses who donated prizes for the raffle and to the individuals who made contributions.

Your support is greatly appreciated. All funds raised stay within the local community.

Family traditions

  TO THE EDITOR: In this technology age, it is nice to see families getting together doing things that are considered tradition. I am fortunate enough to be friends with just such a family.

A few years ago, a friend I work with asked if I would like to hunt with his family. He said, “We don’t sit in tree stands waiting for deer, but we go into the woods and drive them.” It’s hard work but rewarding. I instantly agreed to join his hunting group.

My first year hunting with them, I got a nice eight-pointer and was instantly hooked. So much so my 15-year-old son saw my enjoyment and wanted to join the hunting group. I am proud to say he got a nice eight-pointer this year.
