Put your pet in a holiday costume

To the Editor:

Altamont Community Tradition is pleased to announce that, this year, on Dec. 15, in addition to all other Victorian Holiday events, there will be a Holiday Pet Costume Contest sponsored by Altamont Country Values (Agway).

We hope all Altamont pet owners will transform their pets into elves, reindeer, Santas, or whatever holiday theme they dream up.

Cats will be judged at noon and dogs at 1 p.m.; prizes will be awarded for both.  There will also be opportunity for your pet to have a picture taken with Santa!  Thanks, Agway crew, for making this part of our Victorian Holidays.

Judi Dineen, president
Altamont Community Tradition

January was a busy month for the Helderberg Ambulance Squad. There were 38 calls with 19 transports. The majority of these calls were medical. There were 24 calls in Berne and 14 calls in Knox. The Albany County Sheriff’s Office paramedic and the Guilderland paramedic rode with the squad on 10 calls.

After many months of soul-searching and discussion with my family, I decided not to run for re-election in March as Altamont’s Mayor.
