Donation to pantry

LAKE PLACID — Adworkshop, an employee-owned digital marketing and public relations agency, wrapped up a month of events and community outreach for National Employee Ownership Month recently. After a month of fundraising, the agency presented Lake Placid Ecumenical Food Pantry founder and director Linda Young with a check for $687 and 183 pounds of non-perishable food and other items collected throughout October.

The pantry, which operates out of the basement of St. Agnes Church, was established in 1985 to serve the Adirondack Community. In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of families using the pantry's services. The pantry relies solely on donations and volunteers to provide confidential outreach in communities around the Essex County region.

Bank rated

PLATTSBURGH — Glens Falls National Bank & Trust Co. has been recognized as a superior, 5-Star-rated bank by BauerFinancial Inc. of Coral Gables, Fla., the nation's leading bank-rating and research firm. To earn this rating, the bank must not only report impressive capital levels, but also an enviable loan portfolio with negligible levels of delinquent loans, a combination that has been hard to come by the past couple of years.
