TICONDEROGA - In an effort to keep the streets of Ticonderoga free of litter, the Ticonderoga Highway Department has created the Adopt-a-Roadside Program. The Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter at Ticonderoga High School saw this as an opportunity to give back to the town by participating in this program.
The FBLA Chapter has adopted Calkins Place and Amherst Avenue. These streets were chosen because they are located around the high school. Students thought that keeping the streets clean around the school would set a good example.
The first clean up was on Saturday Oct. 24 with 10 students participating. The students were Jon Ferguson, Jon Granger, Kenny Johnston, Kate Mercer, Dan Morrison, Jessie Patchett, Rachel Rafferty, Tim Robbins, Megan Scuderi and Ralph Todd. In addition to cleaning their adopted streets the group cleaned up Lake George Avenue from Montcalm to Calkins.
The FBLA chapter is planning on doing another cleanup of their streets in April to coincide with the High School's Earth Day program.
