The 2017-2018 season is dedicated to the memory Cathie Burdick, our former Executive Director, Guild supporter, and dear friend.
Catherine Ann Brelsford Burdick died June 29, 2017 at Glens Falls Hospital, leaving several organizations without a dedicated member and friend.
Cathie served as the Executive Director for the Ticonderoga Festival Guild for over 17 years, retiring from that position in 2014. She worked tirelessly to raise funds, and schedule events for children and adults that enriched the lives of the audiences.
Cathie and her late husband of 60 years, Stan, accomplished much together. Square dancing was a major part of their lives. They taught and led square dances and they published and edited American Squaredance Magazine. Together they started a branch of Torch Club International in Ticonderoga.
Cathie was also a member of, and held leadership roles in, several organizations including the Girl Scouts, New Horizons Literary Club, the Carillon Garden Club and the Putnam Presbyterian Church.
We are very grateful for the 17 years of leadership Cathie devoted to the Ticonderoga Festival Guild. She was a dear friend is missed by all who knew her.
