TICONDEROGA - The 30th anniversary of the Ticonderoga Festival Guild was celebrated with a special cake at the President's Party held recently at Emerald's restaurant in the Ticonderoga Country Club.
Recognized were past presidents who were present - Susan Rathbun, Dorothy Henry, Stan Burdick, Dorothy Brauner and Casey Skahan.
Current president Jerry Treadway chose this party as her event for the year.
Following a luncheon buffet, eight Red Hat members from the Ladies Between the Lakes presented a mystery called "Murder at the Earl of Grey's Hound Manor." The suspects were played by Carol Barnwell, Jolene Dyson, Dawn House, Janice House, Diane LaCourse, Ceil Lindstrom, Nan Reale and Jerry Treadway.
Four baskets and the floral arrangement from the head table were given away to members of the audience. A picnic basket was won by Susan Johnson, a wine basket by Nan Reale, a pasta basket by Joyce Mouradian, a garden basket by Lois Konikowski and the flowers by Diane LaCourse.
The President's Party is an event chosen each year by the serving president as a social time and a fund-raiser to help defray expenses of the concert season.
The concert season begins on July 7.
