Wreaths to support ASU

ALBANY, Ga. — The Albany Area Chamber of Commerce and the Albany Convention and Visitors Bureau will be selling Albany State University homecoming door wreaths during business hours this week.

The wreaths, made locally, feature blue and gold ribbons in honor of ASU.

“The wreaths are a perfect way for businesses to show their (Albany State) colors,” Chamber Director of Communications Rachelle Bitterman said. “Homecoming is a huge weekend for our local businesses, and by displaying the ASU wreaths they’re showing visitors that they support the university.”

The wreaths are available at the Visitors Center at 112 N. Front St. from noon-4 p.m. today, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. They may be purchased at the chamber from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Cost is $18.

“These are quality decorations that may be taken down at the end of each day and stored for use again,” Bitterman said. “If businesses are unable to come to the chamber or CVB during business hours but would like to order wreaths, we will deliver them to that business.”
