May 24th may have started out as a typical Thursday, but for over two dozen area REALTORS it was not just an ordinary day!
These dedicated volunteer REALTORS, over 20 of them from the Southern Adirondack REALTORS (SAR), a non-profit member association based in Queensbury, got together with rakes, shovels, work gloves and gusto to help the maintenance crew at the Double H Ranch in Lake Luzerne, NY. Each year, for the past 14 years, REALTOR volunteers Dave and Judy Collins (Century 21 Boyle Realty) on SAR’s Community Outreach Committee have scheduled, coordinated and recruited other REALTORS to “Make a Difference” at least one day a year to help the camp. Double H Ranch is a camp for children with life-threatening illnesses and provides camperships free of charge so that children can experience the joys of camp life and the beauty of nature that abounds in the Southern Adirondacks we call home.
Topping off the day of volunteer work, once again Tim Robinson, representing Trustco Bank provided the volunteers with breakfast and Kevin Porpora representing Glens Falls National Bank provided a pizza party lunch. Both companies are Affiliate Members of the Southern Adirondack Realtors and have provided support to this event for many years.
