On Dec. 4, NeXtWave, the young professionals group of St. Lawrence County, held a board game tournament to raise funds for the Potsdam Holiday Fund.
Through the collection of funds, and donations from area businesses, NeXtWave was able to provide a Potsdam Entertainment Package that consisted of bowling at Market Lanes, a movie at the Roxy and funds for a slice at Little Italy to 10 deserving teenagers.
Additionally, Northern Ice and Dance donated several handbags, wallets, makeup and clothes to brighten the Christmas morning of area teenage girls.
Doing the right thing
I was shopping at Walmart last week. After shopping, I put my purchases in the trunk of the car, returned the cart to the proper place and drove off. I stopped at a gas station in Potsdam and realized I had left my purse in the cart. I drove back to Walmart shaking like a leaf and praying my purse would still be there. I check the carts and it was not there. I asked an employee bringing carts if he had seen a purse, but he had not. He told me to check customer service. I went to customer service, and someone had found my purse and turned it in.
