2011 Chamber Ornaments Now Available
The seventh in a series of beautiful commemorative ornaments of an Alden landmark is now available. This year’s ornament commemorates the Erie County Home. The ornament is etched into a lovely beveled piece of glass.
Brought to you by the Alden Chamber of Commerce, this ornament, designed by Bill Dabb of Laser Ace Engraving, is part of a limited edition series. Introduced in 2005 with the gazebo at Fireman’s Park, the ornaments have been very popular and sell out quickly. The series continued with the Ewell Free Library in 2006, the Alden Advertiser building in 2007, the Alden Historical Society building in 2008, the Whistle Stop Inn in 2009 and St Aidan’s Episcopal Church, the original Black Water Bath House in 2010.
