PORT HENRY - The Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union recently presented a check to the Moriah Chamber of Commerce to help fund the Labor Day celebration in Port Henry.
Upon receiving a letter from the Moriah chamber asking for donations to keep the tradition alive, Pamela Nolan, Ticonderoga Federal's COO, approved the donation.
"We are happy to support this community celebration again this year," said Nolan.
