Winter outerwear for children in need
It’s time to prepare our families for winter, and the Salvation Army has a program named Warm the Children which provides winter clothing for children in need.
Area residents who are short on both money and winter outdoor wear are encouraged to schedule an appointment with the Glens Falls Chapter of the Salvation Army, which can be reached at 792-1960. They are located on Chester Street in Glens Falls.
On a personal note:
Celebrating anniversaries this week are: Jeremy and Karen Ward on Oct. 8 and Rod and Mary Kenyon, Oct. 10.
