“We are looking forward to welcoming representatives from area businesses and organizations to the Elks Lodge. This will be the first networking event we have held with the Chamber. The Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks will be celebrating their 150th Anniversary on February 16, 2018. Since the institution of Ticonderoga Lodge 1494 on July 1, 1924, we have been serving Ticonderoga and surrounding communities with our charitable works for 94 years. We are in the process of planning some events that are open to the public in February to celebrate the 150th Anniversary. We hope you will stop by, have a little fun and see what we are all about,” stated Dick Nadeau – Ticonderoga Elks Lodge.
The Chamber’s “After Business Mixers” provide a networking forum for Chamber Members and area business people in addition to showcasing the site of the host as well as promoting the door prize sponsors. Networking is a key component of Chamber membership and marketing your business.

“We invite you to join us as we kick off the New Year. We will issue our 2018 “Save The Date” of events, share information on the positive and productive year ahead, and celebrate with the Elks. You will also have a chance to hear from our hosts, as well as connect with fellow Chamber Members, businesses, and organizations,” shared Matthew Courtright – TACC Executive Director.
