DANSVILLE – The Scottsburg Highlanders 4H Club presented a check for over $500 to the Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center project on Friday June 3.
According to a press release from Noyes Health, the club raised the money by selling photo postcards of Livingston County this past year.
“Thank you to all our 4H friends for your generous donation and your ongoing support of Noyes Health!” said a representative from Noyes.
The photos on the postcards were taken by the young people and their photography instructor Bob Oswald of Light Bandit Photography. The club will continue to sell postcards at their booth at the Hemlock Fair next month.
Accepting the check on behalf of Noyes Health were Foundation Chairman Jon Shay, Noyes Health Director of P.T., Diagnostic Imaging, Mental Health and Laboratory, Michael Donegan and Noyes Health Foundation Director Cynthia Oswald. The presentation was led by Linda Carney and Ann Davis, and was attended by a number of notable people including the director of Livingston County Cornell Cooperative Extension Bo Freeman, as well as other leadership from that organization.
This is the same group of young people who are spearheading the Caring Capes project for cancer patients. Caring Capes are easy to make bright, colorful, fleece capes that will be given out to patients receiving radiation therapy when the new Cancer Center in Dansville opens. The public is encouraged to donate completed Caring Capes or make a financial donation to the program.
For more information on the donation or the club, call Mark Wittmeyer, Youth Team Coordinator for the Livingston County Cornell Cooperative Extension, at (585) 991-5420.
