We are asking for donations for “Wreaths Across America” which is an organization that places Christmas wreaths on all the graves of our beloved Veterans. There are three cemeteries in Andes – the Rural Cemetery on Upper Back Street (also know as High Street), the Andes Cemetery on Lower Main Street and the Shavertown Cemetery on the backside of the Pepacton Reservoir.
Donation canisters have been placed in Hogan’s General Store, Woody’s Country Kitchen, the Slow Down Café, the Tremperskill Country Store, the Andes Hotel and the Cantina. There will also be an account opened in the National Bank of Delaware County for donations.
Distribution of wreaths will take place on Saturday, December 6, 2008, followed by a day of festivities.Thank you for your kind generosity.
