CHEERS -?To the bell ringers. Friday, our area's Salvation Army held its first Kettle Kick-Off breakfast. Unlike the hype of early holiday shopping and the marketing of the hottest toy of the season, the Kettle Campaign kicks off the season of giving to people in need. Lieutenants Jennifer and Javon Anderson have done an exemplary job in coordinating the services of the Gloversville Salvation Army. Friday morning's event brought the message of assurance that the dollars and change dropped into the world-renowned red kettles brings a touch of joy and peace to many lives affected by misfortune. We cheer all the volunteers who will stand by the kettles, ring a bell and give of their time - for someone in need.
