Today it was off to Potsdam for a meeting of the Regional Economic Council held at Clarkson University's Cheel Arena.....Lt. Governor Robert Duffy was there and there was a discussion of the CFA (combined funding application) process now being used to apply for state dollars. I go mainly to stay in the flow of information and show the flag as state support for projects in and around Watertown is important.
On the way up I stopped at the HSBC bank in Evans Mills since I was passing by at opening time. Never been there before but I saw some people who used to work at the other branches. It's too bad it's all being broken up through sale, as I always liked the service and as an aging coot had gotten to know all the tellers and other people. Branches in Evans Mills and Carthage are being sold to First Niagara while other branches in the county are being acquired by Community Bank NA.
When I got back to town I stopped at Coughlin Printing to look at some proofs on posters (non political). Then I went to Pete's before heading off to work.
