The members of the Carillon Garden Club of Ticonderoga and Hague are taking orders now for their annual holiday wreath sale.
A tradition for many years, the sale of holiday wreaths has become the club’s main source of revenue to enable the club to carry out their many activities, programs and community beautification projects.
“Sincere appreciation is extended to the many businesses and individuals who have purchased wreaths in the past and will renew their orders again this year,” said Betty Rettig, club president.
New orders will be accepted until Nov. 1 by calling wreath chairwoman Jackie Viestenz at 546-9855, Rettig at 585-7247 or any club member.
The locally-made balsam wreaths are available in 12 inch, 18 inch, 24 inch and 36 inch sizes. Orders may be placed for plain wreaths, wreaths with a red or burgundy bow only or wreaths decorated with cones, berries and a bow. Prices range from $15 for a 12 inch plain wreath to $60 for a 36 inch decorated wreath.
New this year, Decorated Kissing Balls will also be available for $30 each. Club members individualize each decorated wreath and make the bows. Wreaths ordered by Nov. 1 will be delivered starting Nov. 16.
