Appreciation Day

CHAMPLAIN — On Saturday, Aug. 18, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Champlain Telephone Company will hold its annual Customer Appreciation Day in conjunction with the Champlain Town-Wide Garage Sale and Champlain Village Fest.

The employees of Champlain Telephone have donated gently-used garage sale items and will participate in the town-wide sale on that day. All proceeds from the day will be split evenly among the food shelves located in the Champlain Telephone service area, which includes Mooers, Mooers Forks, Altona, Champlain and Rouses Point. Attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to the event. Raffle tickets will be on sale throughout the day for a variety of prizes.

The festivities of the day will include a number of free events, including a performance by the Back Porch Band from noon to 2 pm. There will be food, music, a bounce house, face painting, bucket-truck rides and much more.

Fiber-splicing demonstrations will take place at 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. Tours of the facility will be available throughout the day upon request. Customers will be invited to enter a drawing to win a 32-inch IP-compatible flat-screen television. There will be interactive displays showing Champlain Telephone’s newest products and services including DirecTV bundles and features, as well as what increased broadband speeds can do.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Champlain Telephone Customer Service Department at 298-2411.
