To the Editor:
The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign did very well in Ticonderoga this past Christmas! We raised about 6.5 percent more than we did in 2010, and we were just a $100 shy of our best year so far which was in 2009. Thank you to the Wal-Mart Supercenter and the Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union for allowing us to set up kettles at your locations! Thank you to the Times of Ti for publishing numerous articles about our efforts! We had over 90 volunteers. Thank you to everyone that gave us food, coffee and hot chocolate! Thank you to all the generous people who donated money to the kettles! It’s all greatly appreciated!
