Ticonderoga The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 6 p.m. at the Best Western Plus Ticonderoga Inn & Suites, 260 Burgoyne Road.
The dinner and awards ceremony will be used as an opportunity to recognize the 2011 Volunteer of the Year, Chamber Volunteer of the Year and Business of the Year as well as TACC appreciation awards.
In 2010, awards were given to individuals, businesses, organizations and committees who not only support the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce, but give themselves for the betterment of the area and surrounding communities.
“Without the dedication, drive and true spirit of volunteerism in this community and surrounding area, the chamber of commerce and the community would not be able to do all that they do,” stated Matthew Courtright, executive director of the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce. “This event is to honor those who work so diligently to provide opportunities and growth for the Ticonderoga area.”
At last year’s event, the recipient of the Volunteer of the Year award was John Bartlett, the recipient of the Chamber Volunteer of the Year award was Starr Pelerin, and recipient of the Business of the Year award was the Wagon Wheel Restaurant.
TACC Appreciation Awards were also given to the Best Fourth in the North committee, PRIDE of Ticonderoga and the Ticonderoga Central School.
All menu items for this year’s casual buffet dinner are to be donated by area businesses and organizations.
Space is limited for this event. People are asked to RSVP by Oct. 18 by calling the chamber office at 585-6619 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. People who wish to donate a menu item can call or email the chamber office.
