McTeachers Night a success

To the Times of Ti:

I would like to take this opportunity to give big Thank You to all of the teachers and other school staff from both Ticonderoga Schools and St. Mary’s who volunteered to work at McTeachers Night on April 8. Whether you were making fries, taking & filling orders, working in the drive thru, or clearing and cleaning tables, thank you, thank you, thank you. I would also like to thank everyone who worked so hard to get this organized and to recruit so many able volunteers. Without your efforts, this never would have happened.

The McTeachers Night was a fundraiser for the Kiwanis-sponsored Ticonderoga Area BackPack Program.The backpack program provides additional food and nutrition to local area children by sending them home for the weekend with backpacks filled with shelf-stable, easily prepared foods.

I would also like to thank everyone who came out to McDonald’s that night in support of this effort. The evening was a huge success. Scott Hearburg reported a record volume of sales between 5 and 6 p.m. In addition to your food orders, there also were cash donations of almost $200. Thank you so much.

Lastly, but most certainly not least, I want to thank Scott and Robin Hearburg for their most generous continuing support of the Backpack Program. Once again, they have donated their restaurant for to support a worthy cause in our community. This McTeachers Night raised $1,500 for the benefit of the program and local kids!

Thanks again to everyone involved with the McTeachers Night who made this such a big success. We thank you, but the kids and their family’s thank you even more!
