TICONDEROGA - A busy season of fun and learning for youth and adults has been offered by the Ticonderoga Cartoon Museum, it was reported, and will continue through the balance of October.
During the 2009 season over a dozen busloads and car-loads of students and organization members visited the museum in months of June, July and August. One bus came from the Rome area on a reunion jaunt, bringing early classmates of museum director, Stan Burdick.
Youth "learn to draw" classes were popular, with a dozen participants in August. For the first time, a "Stories and Crafts" series for very young children was offered, since the town of Ticonderoga youth program had to be suspended for school renovations.
In addition to board and staff members offering their time for the programs, two new volunteer leaders were on staff, Jan Putnam and Joann Geisel.
Again, the "Bring the Museum to You" series produced visits to 15 schools, senior centers and clubs in varying locations from Plattsburgh to Albany.
Currently, a campaign for membership and support is under way.
The Ticonderoga Cartoon Museum is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday 2 to 4 p.m. throughout October.
