To the Times of Ti:
The first weekend of August was a magical time for my husband and I. We were able to be part of a wonderful group of people who volunteered to raise money for the Ticonderoga Area Little League programs that include the T-Ball, Minor League and Little League.
Over 40 people came out to help run the concession stand at the home All Stars Tournament which included: team leaders – Lori Barneo, Kathy Woods, Cathy Spaulding, Falynn Spaulding, Dawn Gautreau, Tara Peters, and Paula Ladeau. They helped organize the volunteers that covered over 24 hours of shifts and with 3-5 volunteers for each hour. The volunteers included: Cindy Grinnell, Tim Benedict (covered all 24 hours), Melissa Huestis, Robyn White, Erin Dedrick, Tabitha Woods, Jordon Woods, Terrence Benedict, Monty Benedict, Brad Peters, Jon Crammond, Kim Robarge, Bryce Gautreau, Jenn Sours, Amy Reeves, Dawn Wranosky, Sarah Bresett, Savannah Crammond, Amber DuShane, Tonya Thompson, Noah Peters, Avalisa Peters, Colin Bresnahan, Mya Pertak, Austin Barneo, Carson Reeves, Steve Woods, Cindy Condit, Amanda Charlton, and Devon Slattery. A special thank you to Derik Fluery and Ann Michalak for there around the clock dedication and Kasey Paige for donating back the 50 / 50 winnings. Thank you everyone for all your hard work and enthusiasm!
Many area organizations were incredibly supportive towards the success – many thanks to: The Windchill Factory, McDonalds, Ti Pi / Gino’s, Burgoyne Grill, Hot Biscuit Diner, Ticonderoga Central School, Chilson Fire Department, Ticonderoga Police Department, Ticonderoga Area Youth Football Program and the Ticonderoga Fire Department. Without everybody’s contribution and support we would not have had such a successful weekend. Additionally, thank you to all the coaches, umpires, and parents who contributed to this magical experience that happened for the youth of our community – great job!
