Local businesses are rallying to help out an original Schroon Laker, Leslie Lydon Wemett, who was recently diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.
“Miss Leslie”, as she is known, is a longtime Glens Falls National Bank teller and the wife of Tony Lydon, a member of the Glens Falls Police Benevolent Association. The couple have two daughters, 16 and 19. Deb DeCesare, from DeCesare’s Pizza, has offered to collect donations.
“If anyone is interested in donating anything, let me know and we will be starting a bucket here at the pizza place,” Deb wrote on her Facebook Wall.
There’s also a roast beef dinner planned by friends and family -- with the help of the Glens Falls PBA -- on Sunday, September 18 at the West Glens Falls Volunteer Fire Department. Click here for information.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Leslie and her family.
