Crown Point Business leaders from two states will meet when the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce and the Addison County (Vt.) Chamber Commerce hold a joint mixer.
The mixer will be Thursday, July 18, 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Crown Point State Historic Site and the Chimney Point (Vt.) Historic Site.
“We’re happy to welcome our surrounding business communities to come view us as one destination; their bi-state park packed with dozens of attractions and recreational opportunities,” said Suzanne Maye, Lake Champlain Region marketing manager & Lake Champlain Visitors Center manager for the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism (ROOST). “Our new exhibits, lake access, interpretive trails, bicycle and pedestrian paths linked by the spectacular new Lake Champlain Bridge will have everyone beaming with pride and anxious to share with their patrons and guests.”
The mixer will be a “progressive-style” event in which attendees will move from location to location — starting at the Crown Point State Historic Site, moving across the Lake Champlain Bridge,and ending at the Chimney Point State Historic Site.
People can tour the Crown Point State Historic Site 4:30 to 5:15 p.m.; the Lake Champlain Visitors Center/Crown Point Toll House 5 to 5:45 p.m.; Cottonwood on Lake Champlain 6 to 6:45 p.m. and the Chimney Point Historic Site 6:45 to 7:30 p.m. The Samuel deChamplain (Crown Point) Lighthouse, the Lake Champlain Bridge and the Lake Champlain Interpretive Trail will be open throughout the evening.
“After hours business mixers are primarily networking events for members to meet one another, network, develop and nurture business connections,” said Matthew Courtright, Ti chamber executive director. “With several participating chambers, attendees will have the opportunity to meet business people from the other side of the lake.”
Drawings for door prizes will be held. Businesses donating door prizes include Fort Ticonderoga, Dunkin Donuts of Ticonderoga, Sugar & Spice Country Shoppe and the Wagon Wheel Restaurant.
