February is approaching quickly and in Plattsburgh a new theme.. Called the Snowball in Plattsburgh.. Amy Bonn works for the Champlain Valley Transportation Museum.. She’s one of the organizers of the month long Celebration of Winter in the North Country… The Museum is coordinating 23 non profits, government agencies and local businesses and we asked her to give us a feel for how it all began..

Bonn tells us The theme for Children came about as result of the work being done at the Transportation Museum..
