A Christmas card/CD that featured the 2013-14 Schuylerville fifth-grade chorus has helped raise $4,600 for the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center.
The project was put together by three Schuylerville School District employees: John Guay, high school guidance counselor, John Haggerty, director of student services and Don Young, director of transportation, who perform outside of school in a surf band called Big Fez and the Surfmatics.
“We couldn’t have done it without the tremendous support of the Schuylerville School District and community,” Haggerty said. “We plan to continue our fundraising efforts next holiday season and hope to present another check to the Melodies Center.”
