Five Hearts for Youth

Jefferson Democrat is truly pleased to report that come spring sports minded kids in the Town of Alexandria will have some improvements to their fields.

During the Albany budget negotiations this past Winter Addie Russell fought for a
five thousand dollar legislative grant for Hearts for Youth. That is an organization dedicated to maintaining viable summer recreation facilities for kids in the Town of Alexandria and the communities of Redwood and Alexandria Bay.

From left to right Martha Millett, of course Addie, Julia Erck, Gayle Hunneyman and Kim Duellman are the driving forces behind the Hearts for Youth project.
