‘Holiday Train’ to stop in Ti, Port Henry Nov. 30 visit to kick off holiday season By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — The arrival of the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will again mark the arrival of the holiday season in Ticonderoga and Port Henry. The train, decorated in holiday lights and carrying a live musical show, is scheduled to stop in Ticonderoga at 4 p.m. and Port Henry at 5:45 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30. This will be the eighth year the train will stop in Ti. It has stopped in Port Henry the past seven years. It will stop at the train station in each community. The goal of the “Holiday Train” is to collect food and money for local food banks and to raise awareness in the fight against hunger. At each event, the train provides a box car stage, musical talent and a corporate contribution to the local food bank. The community, in turn, is encouraged to donate food and funds, all of which stays in the community. As part of the program the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce on Montcalm Street will accept food donations for the local pantry. Now in its 12th year in North America, Canadian Pacific Railway’s two lighted “Holiday Trains” — one in the eastern U.S. and Canada and another in the Midwest — carry live musi-

The arrival of the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will again mark the arrival of the holiday season in Ticonderoga and Port Henry. The train, decorated in holiday lights and carrying a live musical show, is scheduled to stop in Ticonderoga at 4 p.m. and Port Henry at 5:45 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30. cal shows performed from boxcar stages in an effort to end hunger. Since 1999, the CP Holiday Train program has raised $2.4 million and generated almost 2.6 million pounds of food donations for local food shelves. The entertainment on the “Holiday Train” this year will be The Claytones and Tracey Brown. Formed in the heart of the Ottawa valley, The Claytones spin their melodic, vocal driven, Canadiana brand of country soaked roots music with old school sensibilities. A collaborative project, Kelly, Adam and Anders write and arrange their songs together making The Claytones sound the sum of its parts. The young band recently released its debut album.

The three full-time musicians have released eight full-length recordings of original music under the names of Kelly Prescott, Prescott, Anders Drerup, The Van Meters and Adam Puddington. The National Post listed them as one of the top five Canadian acts to watch in 2012. “The Claytones come across as if they’ve been best friends all of their lives,” said Sue Tennant of Music On McLean House Concerts. “Kelly Prescott, Anders Drerup and Adam Puddington are the ultimate performers. They put on a phenomenal show; their sweet harmonies and instrumental prowess guides us through a nice mix of genres. Their professionalism oozes well beyond their years, like a comfy sweatshirt swaddling the crowd offer-

ing a memorable experience to all they encounter.” Brown is a member of a family of celebrated musicians. She was part of Canada’s most awarded country group, Family Brown, before forming the Juno award winning, PrescottBrown. The Family Brown toured extensively and had a syndicated TV show for 13 years. Over her career, Brown has released more than 20 albums and was nominated for a Juno as Best Country Female Vocalist in 1999. She is also a member of the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. She and husband, Randall Prescott have been actively involved in production of the “Holiday Train” since 2004, as well as performing on many of the tours.

This marks the 22nd year for the holiday tradition, which features a festive display of trees decorated by local businesses, organizations, families and individuals. “The trees are on exhibit on all four floors and provide a magical feeling to the Hancock House,” said June Curtis of the historical society. A highlight of the event is the Hancock House open house Sunday, Dec. 9, 1 to 3 p.m. The open house gives visitors a chance to see the trees and exchange holiday greetings. Ticonderoga’s Hancock House, earlier known as the Headquarters House, is a reproduction of the Colonial Mansion built in Boston from 1737-1740 and occupied by John Hancock, president of the Second Continental Congress and signer of the Declaration of Independence. It serves as home to the Ticonderoga Historical Society. The Headquarters House was erected in 1926 and presented to the New York State Historical Association by Horace A. Moses, a native son of Ticonderoga, to further the interest of the people of northeastern New York and the Lake Champlain and Lake George valleys in history and the fine arts. According to the Hancock Museum literature, the house was constructed as a replica of the John Hancock home which stood on Beacon Street in Boston and which was demolished in 1863 to make room for a new wing of the State House. John Hancock, a Revolutionary patriot, was a rich Boston merchant and his home was one of the finest of Colonial mansions. Entering through the front door, one cannot help but notice the magnificent staircase that has three different designs of spindle used on each step, with intricately carved newel posts. A splendid specimen of Georgian architecture, this building was faithfully executed from the measured drawings made by John Sturgis before the original was destroyed, and it would be fireproof. The exterior, made with Weymouth granite, have survived well the atmospheric and weather conditions, which have lent a happy effect to the stones, causing color changes of greens, pinks and a warm gray.

The museum holds many cherished and priceless antique rarities for visitors to see. The first of these are the original paintings hanging on the walls. Portraits of New York governors were commissioned and executed for the City of Albany through the term of Charles Evans Hughes. Since Governor Hughes’ days, the Herbert H. Lehman and the Franklin Delano Roosevelt portraits have been added through anonymous gifts to the association. From Chippendale chairs to old sleighs, the three storied building holds many conversation pieces. The fanciest of sleighs is a an elaborate twoseated sleigh with a raised coachman’s seat of the type used in the latter part of the 19th century and was loaned by the Ticonderoga Pulp and Paper Company. It was manufactured (c. 1875) by Golder & Post, carriage makers in Newark, N.J., from 1842 to 1887. Completely furnished rooms

Volunteers sought for holiday charity effort Red Kettles planned in Ti, Port Henry By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Christmas is a time for giving, something Glen Buell knows about. Buell is the Ticonderoga coordinator for the annual Salvation Army Red Kettle drive. He and Tina Martin, the Salvation Army Port Henry coordinator, are lining up help for the traditional charity effort. “The Red Kettles have become a tradition throughout the United States, raising money to assist the less fortunate,” Buell said. “If you have a friendly face, you don’t mind being out in the cold for an hour or two, and you would like to do something to benefit your community this holiday season, then consider becoming a volunteer bell ringer for the Salvation Army.” The 2012 Red Kettle campaign will continue through Christmas Eve in Ticonderoga and Port Henry. Volunteers are needed in both communities on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays starting the week before Thanksgiving. The campaign will conclude Christmas Eve. “Companies, organizations, schools and individuals can sign up as volunteers,” Buell said. “Up to 90 percent of the money raised is available to help people in need in our local community. A number of people were helped at Christmas last year. Families and individuals have received assistance to buy food, clothing, school supplies and to pay utility bills.” People interested in volunteering for the Red Kettle campaign, or throughout the entire year, can call Buell at 597-3222 or Martin at 546-4020. Anyone who needs assistance can also call Buell or Martin.

Glen Buell is the Ticonderoga coordinator for the annual Salvation Army Red Kettle drive.

Twelfth Night to conclude Ti holiday season Jan. 6 in Ticonderoga

By Fred Herbst

TICONDEROGA — Twelfth Night will again be celebrated by the Ticonderoga Festival Guild. The annual event will be held Sunday, Jan. 6, at 7 p.m. at a site to be determined. Area choirs will perform their favorite Christmas music. Light refreshments will follow the program. The program is free to all, but donations will be accepted following the program. For more information, call the festival guild office at 585-7015. The Ticonderoga Festival Guild, Inc., was established in 1980 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of the performing arts in the Ticonderoga area. The mission of the Ticonderoga Festival Guild is to promote, develop, sustain, present, and advance a diverse program of performing arts in the Ticonderoga area. The Twelfth Night tradition dates to the Middle Ages. In early times, Christmas was 12 days of celebration, starting on Dec. 25 and culminating on the 12th night, which was considered “Christmas Day.” Hence, the song “Twelve Days of Christmas” and the play “Twelfth Night” by William Shakespeare. In 529, Roman Emperor Justinian named Christmas to be a civic holiday. Work and public business not associated with the celebration of the holiday was strictly forbidden. In 563, a decree from the Council of Braga declared that fasting on Christmas was prohibited and in 567 the Council of Tours elected the 12 days from Dec. 25 to Epiphany to be sacred. As a result, in the Middle Ages Christmas was not one day to take off work and spend with family, but 12 days of celebration. In older times, the “Twelfth Night” brought great festivities. In some areas of the world, it is still proper to erect a Christmas tree on Christmas Eve and leave it up until a week after New Year for this reason.
