Thirteen-year-old Amanda Mason from Parisvhille recently gave her annual donation to the Potsdam Animal Shelter. She collects funds in her hand decorated kitten bank during the year. Her father, Al Mason, owner of the Valley Greenery in Parishville, allows her to leave her bank there so patrons who wish to add to the funds she lovingly collects can do so. Amanda's pets came from the shelter and she wants to help other needy animals be comfortable until a loving home can be found for them. Receiving the check is Sharon Ober.
