The 10th Annual Snoflakers Grinch and Grinchette Contest concluded December 2 at B&J's.  Throughout the last several weeks, people "voted" by donating money into jars (at various businesses) labeled with the candidates' names.  All funds will be used locally to help nonprofit organizations. The 2017 Grinch and Grinchette are Justin Stark and Bonnie Carlson.  Runners-up are Jason LaFollette and Laramie Werner. Snoflakers directed their third of the funds to the Syracuse Rescue Squad to be used for their new ambulance.  The new Grinchette, Bonnie Carlson, is sending her third to the Syracuse Volunteer Fire Department.  Grinch Justin Stark asked that his third be given to the local Gifts4Kids. In addition to Grinch/Grinchette, they also held an ugly sweater contest and collected gifts for the Syracuse Gifts4Kids. Pictured are Grinchette Bonnie Carlson and Grinch Justin Stark.
