The Cultural Arts Initiative will again sponsor MArts Madness.
“After last year’s successful MArts Madness period of events, the Ticonderoga Area Cultural Arts Initiative has organized MArts Madness II, a series of events from March 1 – 16 that include a wide variety of activities for all ages,” Vincent Smith, a member of the group, said. “From square dancing and folk groups to lectures, children’s story hours and decorating cupcakes, there is at least one event for everyone.
“The Cultural Arts Initiative is a community group of all individuals and organizations in the area that are interested in cultural activities of any type,” Smith said. “Everyone is welcome to attend the initiative’s monthly meetings.”
