Community Program continues

TICONDEROGA The Ticonderoga Community Program Series will continue on Wednesday, May 9, with a presentation by Joan Viault titled A Stitch in Ti. The program begins at 7 p.m. at the Ticonderoga Heritage Museum. Ticonderoga once boasted textile mills that utilized the water power of the La Chute running through the center of town. In addition to discussing these industries, the program will feature a Show and Tell of some textiles (mostly quilts) made from leftovers from these Ticonderoga industries. Viault will also talk about how economic and social history can be recorded in the art of quilting. Viault is the president of the board of the Ticonderoga Heritage Museum. The museum is a not-for-profit education institution that interprets Ticonderogas La Chute Corridor. This program is free and open to the public, thanks in part to a grant from the South Lake Champlain Trust. The Ticonderoga Community Program Series is a cooperative program of Fort Ticonderoga, Ticonderoga Heritage Museum, and Ticonderoga Historical Society.
