Veterans Visit

Ticonderoga's American Legion Post # 224 and BPOE Elks Lodges #1494 and #2072 made their annual trip to the Veterans Hospital in Albany recently. Each year these organizations come together with a program called "Bake a Dozen for the Vet's." This year, members of the Ticonderoga and Keeseville communities provided approximately 150 dozen baked goods that were shared with the veterans at the hospital. In addition to the baked goods, the Ticonderoga Black Watch Library donated 150 novels for the library at the hospital. These organization also presented checks to the National Veterans Service Representative and these monies will be used to purchase equipment needed for the Veterans at the hospital.
