Every year NTCNet hosts a customer appreciation picnic to give back to the community, and although it may have been a rainy day it didn’t stop members of the community from taking part in the picnic on Thursday.
The tradition of an annual began seven years ago when the West Canada Creek overflowed and flooded the surrounding area. Members of the community stepped up at a time in need and saved the communications company from possible flood damage.
Cancer survivors, their caregivers and other participants walked the track and teams set up tents and canopies and conducted fundraisers as the community came together for the fourth annual Relay for Life of Dolgeville.
And they had their own reasons for taking part in the 24-hour event.
Gems Along the Mohawk kicked off Rock the Canal Weekend in a big way Friday.

Ashlee Miller was one of 2,500 people to crowd around the rodeo at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds Saturday.
Friday marked Flag Day 2013 and four area Elks Lodges gathered with three local Boy Scout troops Thursday evening in honor of the occasion.
For the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, Flag Day is not simply a day to fly the flag; lodges are required to observe the occasion with a special ceremony and that's what members of Herkimer Lodge No. 1439, Little Falls Lodge No. 42, Ilion Lodge No. 1444 and Canajoharie-Fort Plain Lodge No. 2621 did Thursday at Herkimer High School.
