Ti squad thankful

To the Times of Ti:

The Ticonderoga Emergency Squad is going through a truly historic time right now with the construction of our new facility. We would like to thank all those involved with this process including Mark Galough, vice president of Glens Falls National Bank, Steve Jung, architect, Don Paige, contractor, Rob Simon, attorney, and all those who donated generous amounts towards our building fund. Special thanks goes to International Paper Co. for allowing us to print off the plans for the project. We would also like to thank Dennis and Sue Johnson, who spent countless hours on this project. If not for them, this project would never have made it to the point it has come to now.

In 1947 the Ticonderoga Emergency Squad was formed and since then has had many dedicated members who volunteered countless hours, day or night, to provide the community with emergency medical service. People like Calvin Cross, Mike Connery, Bud Dolbeck, Jack Mattison and many more. If not for the dedication of these and the countless others who volunteered over the years, we would not be where we are today.

These days it takes a lot more training and time away from family and friends to keep up with the demands of being a volunteer EMT, with our new facility we will have more room in which to train, hold fundraisers, and many other activities that we were limited on doing at our old site. We are looking forward to holding CPR training that will be open to the public, and for those who have visited our current facility knows, we are very limited to how many people could attend at one time.

We look forward to the day this project is complete and once it is we will be hosting a huge open house to allow everyone in the community a chance to come in and see how their generous donations and the hard work of everyone involved has turned an empty lot into a new spacious headquarters for our community volunteers.
