It was very much appreciated. Thank you for your honesty.




St. Regis celebration

TO THE EDITOR: The Fourth of July will be here quite soon.

The St. Regis Falls Volunteer Fire Department once again is beginning preparations for our annual Field Day.

This year’s fireworks will cost $5,500. We try our best to provide a quality display. Donations are slowly coming in to help cover their cost. We rely greatly on area businesses and town residents. We mail raffle tickets to many households in our community and solicit many businesses.

Area field days are slowly fading as the cost for everything increases. Thanks to everyone’s generosity, St. Regis Falls continues this tradition.

It is truly a family event. We will have Belly Buttons the Clown, pony rides and a double slide from B and D Entertainment. This year, we will also be having Food Bingo. The day would not be complete without barbecued chicken and hot sausages. We will also have great music and clogging. There will be many vendors, cotton candy and much more.

Please join us on Thursday, July 4, for a day of music, games, great food and beautiful fireworks. The parade begins at 11 a.m. We are honored to have Assemblywoman Janet Duprey as this year’s grand marshal.

Donations can be sent to Mark Sears, St. Regis Falls Volunteer Fire Department, P.O. Box 177, St. Regis Falls, NY 12980.

As always, thank you for your continued support.

Stray cats

TO THE EDITOR: I read the letter from Tammy Reyell about stray cats. No, you are not insane.

I am an animal lover and a frequent donor to our local animal shelter.

A couple of years ago, I called the shelter to please take this starving stray, which happened to be spayed and declawed, into their shelter. I was also told there was no room. I was appalled.

I made a temporary home in my garage for her. I fattened her up and loved her. She became beautiful. My cat would not accept her, but I was lucky to find her a home, even though it broke my heart to let her go.

I still donate because it isn’t the animal’s fault that our local shelters refuse to take in our lost and starving animals.

I hope that pet owners will take the responsibility to spay or neuter their cats and take care of them instead of throwing them away like a piece of trash.
