To the Valley News:
I am writing on behalf of the Third Age Adult Day programs in Elizabethtown and Saranac Lake to extend my thanks and appreciation to the Second Annual Alzheimer's Basketball Tournament which donated the proceeds from the tournament to the Third Age programs in Essex County.
Third Age is a supervised social day program which offers services to elderly residents in our communities. It provides a safe, secure place where older citizens can come for socialization. The program also provides respite for the caregiver. The donations received from the tournament will help us to continue providing services to older residents in our communities.
l would also like to extend a big thank you to both Paul Buehler and John Konowitz for all of their efforts in organizing the tournament. The tournament aided in getting information out to the public on services available for aging family members. A thank you as well as to the many businesses who donated prizes for the raffle and to the individuals who made contributions.
Your support is greatly appreciated! All funds raised stay within the local community.
