Potsdam teams join up for Annual Leaf Raking Day


The SUNY Potsdam women's lacrosse, women's basketball, men's ice hockey, softball and men's soccer teams were out serving the community once again this past weekend.

This time, the teams joined forces to participate in the annual leaf raking event, covering 18 houses in the village and finishing up their afternoon by raking at both Bayside Cemetery and Garfield Cemetery on Sunday.

"Thanks to the Athletic Leadership Council members that ran the day for the teams, and to the Chamber of Commerce and Bicknell Supplies for allowing us to borrow their rakes again," said women's lacrosse coach Lauren Bruce.

The athletic department also has a supply of rakes and tarps that had been accumulated through donations from Lowe's and the SUNY Potsdam staff.
