About 50 people gathered in Veterans Park to thank law enforcement and hear speakers talk about the ongoing drug fight and resources available to help the addicted. The event came on the heels of Operation Gravy Train, which charged 106 people who were allegedly involved in trafficking heroin, fentanyl and cocaine in St. Lawrence County. Attendees and law enforcement pose for a photo at the end of the event. Mayor Tim Currier asked that the residents as a symbolic gesture stand behind the police officers for the above shot.
