To the Editor:
With deep appreciation, I am writing on behalf of the Third Age Adult Day programs in Saranac Lake and Elizabethtown to thank the Third Annual Alzheimer’s Awareness Basketball tournament for donating all the proceeds from the tournament to the Third Age programs of Essex County.
These proceeds help fund the supervisors social day programs which provide services to the elderly residents of our county. The program offers a safe, secure environment where our older citizens can come for socialization as well as provide respite for their caregivers.
A special thank you goes to John Konowitz who organized this event, Paul Buehler and Jared Lambert who assisted with the Elizabethtown games and Bill Larrow and Brian Cross who helped with the Moriah games. Thank you also to all the referees who donated their time to the tournament as well as the many, many individuals and businesses who gave donations.
