NORTH CREEK - On Dec. 16 the North Country Outreach Center celebrated at their annual volunteer Christmas party held at the Outreach Center.
The Outreach Center uses this party as an opportunity to thank the volunteers that offer their time and services to the Outreach Center throughout the year.
"Without these volunteers, we would not be able to do what we do," said Outreach Center board president Judy Brown.
Highlighted at the party was the annual volunteer raffle. The Outreach Center collected gifts from local businesses to raffle off to their volunteers. Local businesses who contributed this year included Gore Mountain, Sara Pearsall, Garnet Studio, Lizzie Keays, the Copperfield and the Grist Mill.
"This year's prizes were beautiful and well-deserved by our volunteers," said contributor Susan Murante.
2009 raffle winners are as follows:
• Elizabeth Canaan won a Gore Mountain ski pass.
• Louisa Preston won a Marcy Dam print from local artist Sara Pearsall.
• Charlotte Needham won a Garnet Studio gift certificate.
• Kathleen Donnelly won a Lizzie Keays gift certificate
• Cindy Morse won a Copperfield gift certificate.
• Lisa Thomas won a Grist Mill gift certificate.
