As I read about, see and experience the many wonderful arts and cultural activities, events and happenings within the Ticonderoga area, I cannot help but be energized and excited. So many organizations, committees and volunteers are dedicated to create communities within the Ticonderoga Area that are full of arts and cultural opportunities including many events, concerts, performances, programs, lectures and gallery shows for community members and visitors alike.
Most of these organizations and committees rely on volunteers for daily functions and events. Without the dedication of so many community members, all we do would not be possible. I would like to thank all of you for your continued support and commitment.
This March a celebration of the cultural arts of the Ticonderoga area will take place from March 2 – 17, titled MArts Madness. This celebration includes a variety of events such as a quilt show, art show, productions/performances, concerts, presentations/lectures, a workshop and special events. The celebration is being promoted by the Ticonderoga Cultural Arts Initiative, a group of volunteers representing Ticonderoga area arts and culture organizations.
In addition the chamber is working closely with the Ticonderoga Area Cultural Arts Initiative to market and promote the celebration to the community and area visitors. Many of the organizations involved with the celebration are chamber members and we are happy to continue to serve, market and promote their events as well as the celebration as a whole. For more information, details or a complete schedule of events contact the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce office.
We look forward to seeing you at the many events happening during the mArts Madness celebration and throughout the year within the Ticonderoga area. A 2013 Save The Date, which is a brief highlight of area events, is available at the chamber office or online. In addition a full calendar of events is available at www.ticonderogany.com, which the chamber staff is updating and adding to on a daily basis.
Matthew Courtright is executive director of the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce.
