NYPA Sponsors “Santa Paws” Event
October 31, 2007
MASSENA—The holiday season will get an early start
on Saturday, Nov. 3 when Santa Claus arrives at the Hawkins Point
Visitors Center at the New York Power Authority’s (NYPA) St.
Lawrence-Franklin D. Roosevelt Power Project for a photo session
with visitors’ pets.
Pet owners will be able to have their pet’s picture
taken with Santa during the third annual “Santa Paws” event, which
will take place from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 12:30 p.m. to 2
p.m. Photos will be suitable for use on this year’s Christmas cards
and will be available to take home on Saturday.
While admission to the visitors center is free,
there will be a $10 donation per photo to benefit Spay-Neuter Now,
an organization devoted to controlling the wanton breeding of dogs
and cats. Volunteers from that organization will be on hand to
provide information on having pets spayed and neutered.
The visitors center, featuring a wide range of
interactive exhibits on such subjects as Water Power and the St.
Lawrence-FDR-Project, Basics of Electricity and Uses of Electricity,
will be open as usual from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
