“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,” said Matthew Courtright, chamber executive director. “This event is to honor those individuals, businesses, organizations and committees who work so diligently to provide opportunities and growth for the Ticonderoga area throughout the year. It is truly an honor to serve the Ticonderoga area, our businesses and the community.”
The 2012 Business of The Year was Sugar & Spice Country Shoppe, Chamber Volunteer of the Year was Allison Kaupelis from the Best Western Plus Ticonderoga and the Volunteer of the Year was Robert “Bob” Dedrick.
Chamber appreciation awards went to Emma Jean and Carl Okusky, Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership, Relay For Life Committee, Distinguished Young Women of Ticonderoga Committee, Swift Maintenance, E.F. Nolan Building Contractor, Stewarts Shops and International Paper Company.
All menu items for the annual dinner, which is a casual buffet dinner, are donated by area businesses and organizations to thank and honor area volunteers. People interested in making a menu item donation for the 2013 dinner can contact the chamber office.
