Funds needed for ice run for storm victims

PLATTSBURGH — Volunteers will truck 7,200 pounds of ice and other much-needed items to Highlands, N.J., to help with storm relief.

Headed by Tonia Finnegan of the North Country Club in Keeseville and Dean Martin of Rouses Point are organizing the trip, which will head out Wednesday morning.

“Half the town is decimated,” Martin said. “Power isn’t expected to be turned on until later this weekend at the earliest. They’ve been here for us, for the Ice Storm. It’s their time of need — we need to help them.”

The point of contact in Highlands is Jennifer Smith Compagni, who is organizing some relief efforts there.

She is the daughter of Bill Smith, past New York State president of the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, and his wife, Carolee, longtime residents of Keeseville who now live in South Carolina. 

Along with ice, Jennifer pegged baby food as badly needed.

Numerous restaurants and other businesses are donating ice and financial contributions to cover transportation expenses, Martin said Monday. More funds are needed. Volunteers are sought to help load the truck starting at about 10 a.m. Wednesday morning outside The Pepper restaurant on City Hall Place and 11 a.m. outside the North Country Club in Keeseville.

To help, contact Finnegan at 569-7202 or Martin at 578-7027 by phone or text. Checks made out to the North Country Club can be mailed to the North Country Club, 61 Laflure Lane, Keeseville NY 12944.
