Ticonderoga The Ticonderoga Heritage Museum will host the 10th annual Taste of Ti on Thursday, May 17, at 6:30 p.m. in the Ticonderoga Elementary/Middle School cafeteria.
Tickets are $17.50 and are on sale now at Rathbun Jewelers and the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce office or by calling 585-6178.
All money raised from this event benefits the museum’s free summer children’s workshops and other free programs that take place at the Heritage Museum.
The children’s workshops will be held this summer Wednesday and Friday 9 to 10:15 a.m. July 11 through Aug. 17 at the museum.
“We hope people will join us with their children, grandchildren or neighbor’s children for summer fun,” said Steve Boyce, museum president. “As always, there is no charge for any of these programs.”
The 2011 children’s workshop series was a collaborative effort with Ti Arts. The “Meet the Ti Artists” series included different local artists helping children create their own works of art.
A highlight of the 2011 season was a presentation of rehabilitated wild birds by the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge. Local artist Stella Dwyer then helped children sketch and paint the birds they had just seen.
The 2012 children’s workshops will again be in partnership with Ti Arts. This year’s theme will be “Artists’ Touch.”
The Ticonderoga Heritage Museum, located on the edge of Bicentennial Park in downtown Ticonderoga, exhibits and educates our community and its visitors on the Industrial Heritage of our area.
Better known as the “1888” building, the museum is the last remaining structure of the Ticonderoga Pulp and Paper Company that once covered the entire park area.
The museum has a rotating display of more than 38 scale models of various industries that were responsible for the growth of this town on the LaChute River that connects Lake George and Lake Champlain.
