Help brighten a neighbor's life

Saturday Oct. 24 is here, and it's national Make a Difference Day. A good deed, a remembrance, the delivery of a home-baked delicacy, offering a ride in the country, making that past-due visit, chopping firewood for a neighbor, or crafting a gift for a shut-in - all these will bring benefits to you, your neighbor and community. Remember, it's the little things that often bring a smile.

Let us at the Adirondack Journal know let us know what you did to help others. Whether you were the one accomplishing the good deed or the recipient of the thoughtful action, let us know by calling 623-2580.
