Our members, partners, area businesses and community members continue to be dedicated and supportive every year for the Chamber’s Annual Fundraiser and it is deeply appreciated. The goal for this year is to continue to have this event be our premier fundraiser, supporting the ongoing efforts of the Chamber. We encourage your sponsorship and support for the 2017 Annual Fundraiser as we plan for the future of the Chamber and the Ticonderoga Area.
