Hit cancer out of the park
To the editor:
In June the fifth annual Cancer Society's Relay for Life was held at the Amsterdam High School. It was a night of music, games, celebration and remembrance.
As in the past, community members and businesses came together to make this year's event successful. So far we have raised over $35,000.
Donations can still be made by Aug. 31 by going to the web site http://relay.acsevents.org/site/TR?fr_id=-56353&pg=entry or by mailing them to American Cancer Society, RFL Amsterdam, 1 Penny Lane, Latham 12110.
In conjunction with the Amsterdam Mohawks we are also holding a Hit Cancer Out of Park night on Friday, July 25. A family pass ticket costing $10 gets two adults and four children into the game and fireworks. Sixty percent of pre-sale tickets go back to Relay for Life. To purchase tickets you can contact any team member or me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 842-8135.
Please come and support us in the fight against cancer.
Veterans, seniors in need
To the editor:
In the letter I sent to you, "Golden years not very golden," printed June 28, I forgot to add what was needed for our veterans and seniors and all items should be taken to the Office of Aging on Guy Park Avenue, Amsterdam.
These are the items in need: Paper goods (toilet paper, paper towels, tissues); personal Items (soap, toothpaste, false teeth cleaner, shampoo); cleaning Items (dish soap, laundry soap, cleaning goods); most of all, food (all non-perishable, soups, rice, peanut butter, etc.).
Everything is needed and once again thank you so very much. God bless.
