Garden Club wreath workshop set

TICONDEROGA — The Carillon Garden Club will be offering a new opportunity to get into the Christmas spirit with a “Wreath Decorating Workshop” from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 25, at Studio 117.

The location is next to the Downtown Gallery, 117 Montcalm St. in Ticonderoga. Reservations are strongly suggested.

Carillon Garden Club member and wreath project chair Judy Walker has created this opportunity for area residents to come and choose their own decorations and create their own seasonal wreaths.

Participants can choose from sparkly, natural or traditional decorations to adorn their 12-inch balsam wreath. Club members will be on hand to help show how to make bows and attach the decorations. Light refreshments will also be available. The cost for this workshop is $25.

Reservations may be made by calling Walker at 984-0088 or Sue Johnson at 543-6127.

Carillon Garden Club members are confirming and taking new orders now for Christmas wreaths. New orders are welcome. Fresh balsam wreaths are made locally and range in price from $15 for a 12-inch plain wreath to $60 for a 36-inch decorated wreath. Wreaths come in 12- to 36-inch sizes.

Decorated kissing balls are also available for $30. To order, contact Walker at 984-0088 or club president Betty Rettig at 585-7247. Wreaths will be delivered just before Thanksgiving.

The sale of wreaths is a major fundraising event that allows the club to do annual beautification projects in Ticonderoga and Hague.
