To the Times of Ti:
As a resident of Ticonderoga, I am very excited about the changes and expansion of programs that Fort Ticonderoga now offers. A visit to the fort any day of the week provides a living history to be enjoyed by all visitors. There are more special programs and events offered than ever before. In addition, when the fort is closed, there are programs open to the public which are wonderful opportunities for everyone to participate.
The new Fort Ticonderoga leadership has risen to confront the challenges it was dealt a few years ago. Fort Ticonderoga is self-reliant. It receives little or no funding from state, federal or local governments. The fort is almost entirely dependent on the monies it receives through admissions, programs and charitable contributions.
I congratulate Beth Hill and the Fort Ticonderoga board of trustees for their continuing energy and excitement in support of our local treasure. Fort Ticonderoga once helped to shape a region and a country. We should all be proud and supportive of our local historical site.
