To the Times of Ti:
The V.F.W. Post 146 of Ticonderoga held its regular monthly meeting of the post on Monday, Nov. 1. Commander Rick Bennett opened the meeting at 6 p.m. with nine members present. We were saddened to learn of the death of our WWII member Vincent Jones of Hague and the grievous injury of Dayton Dedrick, while felling a tree.
Drawing was held for our quilt raffle. Audrey Provancha won the beautiful quilt knitted by the daughter’s of the American Revolution for benefit of heating costs of our building. The gun rifle, a 306 Savage hunting rifle, was won by Tom Duval of Moriah. Mr. Dale St. Louis, our newest member, a transfer life member from Connecticut and also past state commander of that state, drew the lucky numbers. We wish to thank everyone who took part in our rifle raffle and everyone who purchased chances, gave donation and did the selling.
Also, the senior citizens are now holding their daily meals at our building. They did a wonderful job of decorating the room and looks very appealing. We are so pleased seeing our building being used and are in hopes school children can soon meet there and learn about what the Veterans of Foreign Wars are all about.
