Sanford W. Morhouse of Ticonderoga has been named vice president and president-elect of the Fort Ticonderoga Association. Morhouse will succeed current Fort Ticonderoga Association President Peter S. Paine, Jr. of Willsboro when his term expires.
continued “Sandy’s passion for Fort Ticonderoga’s mission and community connection to Ticonderoga make him the ideal successor to Peter Paine as president of the Fort Ticonderoga board,” Hill said. “He has been a valued adviser and I look forward to our partnership in the future as Fort Ticonderoga achieves its vision to be the premier military historic site and museum in North America.”
Morhouse is a member of several boards including Office Power, Inc., Lasair Capital, LLC, Broad Hollow Estates, Inc., Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation, The Benedictine School Foundation and the Arto Monaco Historical Society. He also serves on the executive committee of the Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance, an organization committed to building economic growth in Ticonderoga and the surrounding region.
