Ticonderoga The 2013 Business of Year in Ticonderoga has made some sweet contributions to the community.
Dunkin’ Donuts garnered the honor at the annual Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce volunteer appreciation dinner and awards ceremony recently.
“The 2013 Business of the Year award goes to a business that is a wonderful support of not only the chamber, but of the community as a whole,” Scarlette Merfeld, chamber second vice president, said making the presentation. “They donate and participate consistently with monetary donations, time and talent to chamber events, community events/fundraisers and charities. They have also hosted events for the chamber. The recipient of this year’s award is consistently there when needed with continued dedication to the chamber and the community.

The chamber also honored its Chamber Volunteer of the Year and Community Volunteer of the Year.
Starr Pinkowski is the Chamber Volunteer of the Year.
“Chamber Volunteer of the Year is an individual that has been actively involved with the chamber, participates in and assists with functions and events, shows spirit, enthusiasm and energy,” Susan Rathbun, chamber first vice president, said in presenting the award. “The award recipient is always there when needed, specifically for chamber events and supporting the chamber staff. She never asks, wants or looks for recognition, which is a sign of a true volunteer. This person is often behind the scenes making sure things are running smoothly and is there for the chamber when needed.
“For her dedication to the chamber and the growth of the area we are honored to present this award to Starr Pinkowski of Glens Falls National Bank,” Rathbun said.
