Brothers Celebration

TO THE EDITOR: Thank you to everyone remotely associated with the Brothers Celebration in the former Mount Assumption gymnasium.

It was a great pleasure to put this event together to pay our respects to a group of people who have given 111 years of service to the Plattsburgh educational system.

However, no large event ever goes without a faux pas, and we also had one. While we gave tribute to the wonderful contribution of the brothers present, there were two left out on my part.

Present at the celebration were two former brothers who still to this day have supported the mission of education that the brothers lived.

Louis Levesque and Roger LeCroix were both present at the dinner. I would like to take this opportunity to apologize for the oversight and also thank them for their contribution to education.

Thank you again for all of our contributors and help with this wonderful event.

Program donations

TO THE EDITOR: Stewart’s Holiday Match has donated to JCEO’s Summer Camp Scholarship Fund in the amount of $2,250.

We would like to express our thanks to Stewart’s Shoppes and their customers for supporting this program for low-income children within Clinton County.

The Advocacy and Resource in Plattsburgh donated over 2,000 pounds of food to JCEO’s Food Pantry in April. We would like to express our thanks and gratitude for their generous support of our program.

JCEO would also like to thank Perrywinkle’s Fine Jewelry for their donation to the Community Action Angels Safe Sleep Program. The program offers free swaddles and safe-sleep education to parents of newborns at the Alice T. Miner Center for Women and Children.

As a result of their donation, more than 300 families with newborns will receive swaddles and safe-sleep education.
