‘Neighbors Helping Neighbors’ fair thanks

To the editor:

The Tri-Lakes Community Alliance for Addiction Prevention sponsored a “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” Health and Wellness Fair on Sept. 14, at the North Country Community College Sparks Athletic Complex. The fair was organized to provide information on addiction prevention, to raise awareness of local services, and to promote health and fitness activities.

The Alliance acknowledges and thanks NCCC and Paul Smith’s College for their assistance with set up and use of the facility. The Alliance thanks the 32 exhibitors for the information they provided on local prevention services and fitness-related topics with a special thanks to local law enforcement personnel for their contributions. In addition, the Alliance wishes to thank the 13 sponsors that donated thousands of dollars that were used to purchase T-shirts and related give away items. Sponsors such as St. Joseph’s, Adirondack Medical Center and Citizens Advocates deserve special recognition for their significant donations.

The Alliance will soon begin preparations for another Health and Wellness Fair in 2020. Volunteers are welcome and are encouraged to contact the Franklin County Community Services Office at 518-891-2280.
