The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce is in the process of looking for a venue to host the 2011 Volunteer Appreciation Dinner and Ceremony in mid to late October.
The selected host site must be able to accommodate up to 120 people as well as provide general setup equipment for a casual buffet dinner and ceremony as well as offer a cash bar.
The venue must also allow TACC to bring in food items to be donated from area businesses.
This year’s dinner and awards ceremony will be used as an opportunity to recognize the 2011 Volunteer of the Year, Chamber Volunteer of the Year and Business of the Year.
The chamber is now accepting nominations for the categories mentioned as well as nominations for other TACC appreciation awards for individuals, businesses or organizations in the Ticonderoga area that are deserving of recognition for their contributions to the community of the chamber.
In 2010 awards were given to certain individuals, businesses, organizations and committees who not only support the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce, but give themselves for the betterment of the area and surrounding communities.
“Without the dedication, drive and true spirit of volunteerism in this community and surrounding area, the chamber of commerce and the community would not be able to do all that they do,” stated Matthew Courtright, executive director of the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce. “This event is to honor those who work so diligently to provide opportunities and growth for the Ticonderoga area.”
At last year’s event, the recipient of the Volunteer of the Year award was John Bartlett, the recipient of the Chamber Volunteer of the Year award was Starr Pelerin, and recipient of the Business of the Year award was the Wagon Wheel Restaurant. TACC Appreciation Awards were also given to the Best Fourth in the North Committee, PRIDE of Ticonderoga and the Ticonderoga Central School.
