Contribution received

PLATTSBURGH — TD Bank recently presented $629.60 to the Champlain Valley Transportation Museum to be used to support the general operating needs of the museum. This annual contribution is made possible through

the number of community members who sign up to participate in the Affinity Banking Program.

This program helps nonprofit organizations raise money by making an annual contribution to the organization based upon the average balance of all linked accounts. Eligible accounts include business and personal, checking, savings, money market, CD and retirement.

For more information or to sign up to support the museum through the Affinity Program, contact: Lisa LaFountain, director of fundraising and membership at or phone 566-7575 or 440-554-3914.

The Champlain Valley Transportation Museum was founded in 2000 by a group of car and history enthusiasts from the Plattsburgh area. What began as an automobile museum has grown to cover many forms of transportation. CVTM has

two large exhibit halls. There are more than 25 automobiles on display, a model train room, a bicycle exhibit and more. The foundation of CVTM is the Lozier Motor Co., which operated in Plattsburgh during the early 1900s.
