CANTON — Niles Asset Management, Inc., a northern New York investment advisory/consulting business, has made a $16,000 contribution to the St. Lawrence County Historical Association.
A check presentation ceremony was held July 16, at the Historical Association, 3 East Main St. The funds are earmarked for SLCHA’s endowment campaign — Campaign For the People of St. Lawrence County.
“We at Niles Asset Management are pleased to make this pledge to the St. Lawrence County Historical Association. We have supported this important organization for several years. We believe the association serves a very important function in helping residents of St. Lawrence County better understand the county’s rich history,” said Terry L. Niles, Certified Financial Planner (CFP), Niles Asset Management in a press release from the Historical Association. “Furthermore, we believe that supporting the endowment campaign is an important step in insuring that
the association continues its mission for years to come.”
SLCHA board of trustees president Lance W. Rudiger applauded the financial support from Niles Asset Management, noting this generous gift will go a long way in broadening SLCHA’s services.
“The St. Lawrence County Historical Association greatly appreciates the support from Niles Asset
Management for our Campaign for the People of St. Lawrence County,” Mr. Rudiger said. “This funding will allow us to promote our vision of broader outreach, education opportunities, increased exhibit presentations, our popular Brown Bag lunches, and a variety of interpretive activities.”
Mr. Rudiger pointed out that Terry Niles, who established the business in 1991, is an accomplished historian who has presented fascinating historic topics to many groups over the years.
“We hope this support and partnership will allow us to continue to reach out throughout St. Lawrence County with the rich history and genealogy of our people and learn their stories through the Quarterly magazine and a wide variety of communication tools,” Mr. Rudiger said. “This is certainly great news.”
