Janine Scherline, executive director of the NCCCA, said the image uses the colors of late summer and early autumn with lush fields and mountains in the background. “It evokes the time in the Adirondacks where corn on the cob is being enjoyed and apples are ready for picking, and I think residents and visitors alike will certainly be able to relate,” she said.

Reproductions of Guglielmo’s artwork are available on posters that can be purchased at the center and chamber offices. This round’s agriculture theme inspired Vesco Ridge Vineyard to produce a red table wine featuring Guglielmo’s winning artwork. The colorful wine label informs buyers of the Adirondack Coast ARTWays project and can be purchased at the Vesco Ridge Vineyard tasting room.

ARTWays project sponsors include Mountain Lake PBS, CVPH Medical Center, Pfizer, Studley Printing/Lake Champlain Weekly, Best Western Inn at Smithfield, Ground Round Restaurant, Tip Top Frames Art Center & Gallery and Meadowbrook Healthcare.

Shred fest

TICONDEROGA — As part of its annual Credit Union Week celebration, the Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union (TFCU) will host its third annual Shred Fest on Monday and Tuesday.

The free paper-shredding event aims to increase public awareness of identity-theft prevention. Community members are invited to bring their confidential documents to be shredded at their local TFCU office during event hours.

Documents will be shredded on site in a mobile shredding truck. The first 10 participants at each location will receive a free TFCU flashlight. Paper, folders, envelopes, check registers, paper bound by staples, paperclips and spiral bindings can be shredded. However, documents bound with metal binder clips cannot.

In exchange for the free service, TFCU asks participants to bring a non-perishable food item for donation to the local food pantries. All of the shredded paper will be recycled and the proceeds will be donated to food pantries in Ticonderoga, Moriah and Elizabethtown.
