LONG LAKE - The Eastern Star, Abenaque Chapter #745 will be sponsoring a mitten tree this fall. The ladies hope to fill the tree with hats, mittens, gloves and scarves generously donated from people in the surrounding communities. The donated items will be given to Social Services for children and seniors within and around Hamilton County.
The tree will be located in the Long Lake Library lobby from Oct. 15 through Nov. 15. Donations can be dropped off at the library when it is open or in the book return box at the library after hours. If you do not live close by but would like to donate to this great cause, feel free to use the mail. Address your warm item to:
Cornelius Vanderbilt Library
HC 1 Box 135
Long Lake, NY 12847
The OES would like to thank the Long Lake Library for providing a space for the tree.
