Race the Train has developed into much more than a fundraiser. Garnering ample community support, the event has become town-wide tradition.
"Books for Tots is one way of thanking the community for making Race the Train so successful," said Arsenault. "It is our pleasure to do it."
Johnsburg Dollars for Scholars, which raises money for annual scholarships given to Johnsburg Central School graduates who exhibit a dedication to volunteering and who plan to continue their education, has recently seen an increase in community support. They just concluded their most successful phonathon yet, despite the financial strains that the economy is placing on the individual, according to Arsenault.
Anyone wishing to contribute donations or to get involved with Dollars for Scholars can contact Arsenault at 251-2602.
