To the Times of Ti:
New signage and beautiful bouquets of flowers at every entrance to town are greeting visitors coming to Ticonderoga!
I am told this is due to the Ti (Carillon) Garden Club that is worthy of kudos for their community spirit and many hours of toil! As one walks through Ti they can see honeybees enjoying the nectar of beautiful flowers everywhere the eye turns. Residents as well as tourists are uplifted and Ti officials can be proud of the bright appearance.
Sorely there is a problem one can notice which is not only an eyesore but also a safety concern! Trying to cross Montcalm Street has become a life or death matter! The crosswalks are all but impossible for motorists to see and pedestrians are put at risk trying to cross. People exiting businesses have a hard time getting from one side of the street to the other.
This is one of those times when I long for my youth, as I would gladly volunteer to apply paint to the crosswalk areas if I were not hampered by some physical ailments. This being said I am willing to donate the first $100 to start a fund to get the crosswalks painted!
Together with the beautiful flowers the crosswalks will enhance our main street and bring business to our stores and restaurants!
