The Ticonderoga Knights of Columbus staged an Italian buffet for the benefit of the Ticonderoga Festival Guild, raising $1,030. Rollin Slattery, grand knight, presents a check to Cathie Burdick, guild executive director. The money supported a free concert by the Hague Jazz Quartet.
continued “Monetarily the guild fared well, but it can no longer schedule concerts to which no one comes,” Burdick added. “The Arts Trek will become the main summer focus for the foreseeable future.”
The guild did receive funding this year from Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union, Stewart’s Shops, Honeybee Foundation, Wal-Mart Foundation, South Lake Champlain Fund of the Vermont Community Foundation and the Arts Council of the Northern Adirondacks.
“While these are the larger gifts, the guild could not exist without all the faithful members and advertisers who support Arts Trek annually,” Burdick said.
The Ticonderoga Festival Guild, Inc., was established in 1980 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of the performing arts in the Ticonderoga area.
The mission of the Ticonderoga Festival Guild is to promote, develop, sustain, present, and advance a diverse program of performing arts in the Ticonderoga area.
