To the Times of Ti:
We just wanted to congratulate and thank those persons responsible for painting the beautiful mural in downtown Ticonderoga. We are fairly new to the area and have noticed a great energy in the town.
It is our understanding that the mural project took months to develop and we appreciate the efforts of those who persevered and kept the project alive.
Mary Ann Andrusko and her daughter, Keeley, who attended meeting after meeting, funded the project and climbed the scaffolding with paint brushes in hand.
Jay’s Sunoco, for cooperating with the operation and for donating to the project.
Ticonderoga student artists for their mural designs
Vincent Smith for his help in choosing the right colors and helping during the painting weekend.
Jim Beaty for enlarging the artists rendition to scale and for helping with the painting.
Seddon Beaty and Patty Morehouse for climbing the scaffolding and painting along with Mary Ann and her daughter.
Bill Best for supplying the project with scaffolding and moving it five different times during the project.
Aubuchon Hardware for supplying the paint at cost.
Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance and Chattie Van Wert for spearheading the project, keeping the discussion alive during the planning stages and seeing it through its completion.
It’s a beautiful mural and all of those involved should be congratulated. It is amazing to see what can be accomplished when everyone works together.
Many thanks and congratulations to all those involved.
Mariann and Randy Rapple
