“The funds raised will provide area qualified residents assistance with emergency home repairs,” said Sheridan Burleigh, president of PRIDE. “The purpose of Neighbors Helping Neighbors is to have non-grant funds available for those residents in desperate need to cover the costs of failed furnaces, leaking roofs, and needing handicap accessible entrances to allow seniors to stay in their homes.”

The event is a pig roast and includes pasta salad, cole slaw, baked beans and one free beverage. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children ages 5 to 12. Children younger than age 5 will be free.

Beverages will be lemonade, ice tea, beer and wine. Drinks can be purchased for $2 each after the one free beverage.

Live music will be by Chris LaPointe and Company.

“We want this to be a community event and what better place to gather than the wonderful Ticonderoga beach with its amazing views,” said PRIDE Executive Director, Sharon Reynolds.

Tickets are available at the PRIDE office, at the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce office and can be purchased from board members Sheridan Burleigh, Jane Borho, George Sperry, Ann Morette, Kathy Liddell, John Bartlett, Stu Baker and Jon Thatcher.

PRIDE is a non-profit rural preservation company in its 28th year with a mission of connecting and enhancing communities through housing rehabilitation, downtown revitalization, historic preservation and community development.
