To the Times of Ti:
The Carillon Garden Club wishes to thank all individuals and businesses in the Ticonderoga area who supported their recent wreath sale fund raising project. Nearly 300 wreaths were sold. Since the club is a non-profit 501 (c ) (3) organization, your contribution is not only appreciated but also tax deductible.
Funds raised from the sale of holiday wreaths will be used to help beautify areas in Ticonderoga and Hague in the coming year. Annual and perennial flowering plants will be purchased and planted at the entranceways to provide a welcoming and festive sight for visitors and residents. Additional contributions towards this endeavor would be appreciated.
Rather than fill up transfer station space or litter the country-side after the holidays, wreaths may be recycled. All materials from the wreaths can be reused into crafts or recycled in an approved manner. The balsam branches may be added to a compost pile and the metal form can go into your metal recycle bin. Wreaths may also be left at Lonergan’s Antiques on Rt. 9N in Ti or with a member of the Carillon Garden Club.
Members of the club have been participating in the wreath project for many years and are happy to provide locally made fresh balsam wreaths and kissing balls at reasonable prices. Bows are handmade by members and decorations are handsomely arranged, sometimes per Individual requests. Orders for next year will be accepted in September and October 2013.
Once again, the Carillon Garden Club appreciates your support through your purchase of holiday wreaths and also recycling them in an environmentally friendly way. Thank you.
Betty Rettig, president
