Sweet Treats For Soldiers
Throughout the month of March, students and staff members at J.W. Leary Junior High School collected over 1,300 candy bars for the “Sweet Treats for Soldiers” campaign organized by the Potsdam Elks Lodge. The goal of the campaign was to collect at least 10,000 candy bars throughout the North Country to send to the USO at Fort Drum for soldiers returning from Afghanistan this summer.
