continued “There are numerous people and groups that spend a great deal of time in creating and producing wonderful activities,” Smith said. “There is a lot going on. By promoting, fostering and cultivating the visual, performing and literary arts, the initiative wants to build a strong sense of community and make both our residents and visitors aware of the many offerings that exist in the Ticonderoga area.
“Emphasizing and strengthening the extent of the community’s culture will help improve the quality of life in the region and make the Ticonderoga area more attractive to visitors and businesses that might locate in the area,” he said.
The group meets the first Monday of the month at 5 p.m. in the Community Building. Public participation is welcome. More infromation is available online at http://ti-alliance.org/cultural-arts/cultural-arts-initiative.html
