Canton Town Board Honors United Helpers

CANTON – A proclamation by Canton Town Supervisor Mary Ann Ashley declared May 10 as United Helpers Recognition Day in the township.

Members of the United Helpers leadership team attended this week’s town board meeting to receive the proclamation. The town also gifted the organization a lilac tree and a replica of the historic Town Hall, which was destroyed by fire in 1962.

United Helpers Vice President of Human Resources Michelle Matthews was among those in attendance at the meeting.

“We would like to thank the Town of Canton for this honor. While we haven’t been in Canton for 125 years, Canton serves as a home for many of our services today, including our nursing home, independent senior living, assisted living, physical and occupational therapy, and behavioral health clinic,” she said.

As she read the proclamation, Ms. Ashley became emotional and shared that her mother spent time at the United Helpers Home in Ogdensburg as a child. Today, the property where the home once stood houses the Edgar A. Newell Memorial Golden Dome.

“We were especially touched to hear of the connection Ms. Ashley has to our organization,” Ms. Matthews said. “It’s amazing that even more than 50 years since the United Helpers Home closed, we are still hearing stories like this.”
