    Pratt Northam Foundation Announces Grant Award for Joint Community
    Project with Lewis County Agricultural Society and Lewis County
    Amateur Hockey Association

    The Board of Directors for the Pratt Northam Foundation is pleased to announce
    that it has awarded $ 74,725 to the Lewis County Agricultural Society and the
    Lewis County Amateur Hockey Association for the completion of a new concrete
    floor in the Forest Park Pavilion. The new floor will provide a better space for all
    to gather and the Hockey Association will be able to place their chiller lines for
    the ice rink directly into the floor. This will save wear and tear on equipment as
    well as countless volunteer labor hours when setting up and tearing down the
    rink.

    The Lewis County Agricultural Society has generously allowed the use of its
    buildings and property at the Lewis County Fairgrounds to many local
    businesses and agencies and have hosted Relay for Life, Food Truck Fridays,
    Lewis County National Night Out and the Saturday Farm and Craft Market just to
    name a few. Not to mention the AMAZING County Fair that they provide for all of
    us to enjoy while we celebrate all that makes Lewis County such an awesome
    place to live.

    The Lewis County Amateur Hockey Association is a volunteer organization that
    provides countless hours of support to make the Skating Rink a fun and available
    opportunity for the young and the young at heart to gather and enjoy some
    outdoor winter activity. Not only are they responsible for setting up and maintain
    the ice at the rink for the winter, they also provide FREE skating and hockey
    lessons for our area youth. Working with the Village of Lowville also allows the
    Skating Rink to provide open hours of free skating every day of the week. The
    time and commitment that this group provides is the reason that Lewis County
    has this thriving community asset and no amount of words can really convey just
    how much time and effort they give to supporting our area youth.

    The Pratt Northam Foundation is grateful to these organizations for their
    continued support of our community and our area youth. They are especially
    pleased to have these 2 organizations collaborating to provide space and
    opportunities for the community at large. The Board of Directors recognizes their
    continued efforts and applauds these organizations and their volunteers for their
    community involvement. It is the people in these organizations and the support
    that they provide, that helps our community be the best that it can be. The Pratt
    Northam Foundation is pleased to be able to support their efforts.
