The Best Fourth in the North committee is in need of members and volunteers to ensure that this treasured celebration continues into the future. Currently, there is a very small group of dedicated volunteers who serve on the committee. These committee members spend many hours throughout the year planning and making this celebration possible. Without more volunteers to help keep the Best 4th in the North tradition alive, the future of the celebration may be unknown for the following years.
There are some changes in regards to the Best Fourth in the North committee that have taken place. Angela Brown who has been the chairperson for a number of years and a dedicated volunteer to the committee over the past 10 years, has stepped down as chairperson. She has handed the reigns over to Debbie Barber, who has been a dedicated volunteer to the committee for many years.
It has been a pleasure to work alongside Angela Brown in being a part of the Best Fourth in the North committee. Even though her leadership will be missed, I am equally as excited to work with Debbie in planning next year’s event. Her knowledge in regards to what it takes to plan an event on such a large scale will be invaluable to the committee.
The 2012 celebration is already in the beginning stages of planning. The Best Fourth in the North committee recently met at the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce office, located in downtown Ticonderoga. If you are interested in serving on the committee and volunteering your time, please contact 585-6876.
Matt Courtright is executive director of the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Best Fourth in the North committee.
