To the Residents of the Town and Village of Corinth:

 

We would like to thank our community for coming together during the recent power outage. On Friday when it was apparent that we would be without electricity for an extended period of time and that the temperatures would be below freezing, village and town officials set-up a 24-hour command center at the Town Hall. Capitol District DSO (former Adirondack Regional Hospital) offered us their building on Smith Drive to use as a shelter and vans were donated by the Corinth Senior Center and Capitol District DSO to transport residents to the shelter. Local television and radio stations were alerted of the availability of the shelter and the Corinth Fire and Police Departments made broadcast announcements throughout the town and village. Town and village officials and staff worked tirelessly throughout the weekend to make arrangements for many of its residents who were in need of assistance. Adult and many youth volunteers at the shelter gave selflessly of their time to see that residents needing assistance were fed and cared for until the time that the shelter was closed on Monday morning. We would like to thank all who volunteered and assisted in this effort: Capitol District DSO staff; volunteer nurses; town & village DPW staff; Corinth Fire Department Auxiliary; Corinth Central School District; Corinth Emergency Squad and Paramedics; Upstate Home Respiratory for donation of medical needs; Jack’s Place for preparing and delivering the Sunday night meal; donations of food from Stewarts, Schwann’s, Hannaford, Corinth Community Churches Food Pantry, Price Chopper and GU Family Markets; donations of pet food from Adirondack Save-A-Stray; Kevin Cushing and National Grid for around-the-clock updates and quick response; Ed Tremblay, Saratoga County’s Acting Director of Emergency Services for providing mattresses; and Albany Airport for donating cots. Please accept our apologies if we have left anyone out. The strength of our community during this time of need was overwhelming. Although the weather outside was very cold, we all came away with a warm feeling in our hearts.
