Ticonderoga supports girls

To the Times of Ti:

I am the director and creator of the non-profit Royal Winter Pageant. I have donated two years now organizing, practicing and committing my time and effort so young girls in grades 3-8 could have something to work hard towards. I started the pageant so young girls could learn how to be responsible, dedicated and proud and learn how to show sportsmanship and leadership.

I have grown up in Ticonderoga for the last 29 years and have seen Ticonderoga change in many ways. I wanted to give the girls something to put forth their abilities.

Each girl has to perform a talent, group dance and stand in front of a crowd and speak and walk. I am proud to say the girls have done a great job!

If it wasn’t for the parents, family and friends, those who donate towards the pageant — Wal-Mart, Treadway Outfitters, Rathbun's Jewelry, Wagon Wheel and Pat Armstrong, and those who donate their time during the show: Nancy Frasier - photography, Dan Cross - DJ, judges and volunteers who help sell baskets, food, and tickets — I would not be able to put on this show.

I know times are hard and especially in Ticonderoga but if we stay positive and support each other and especially our children we can be in a better place in the future. So I wanted to say thank you to Ticonderoga and its residents for showing support and helping our local girls become local leaders.
