LOUDONVILLE - The Loudonville Mohican Chamber of Commerce, along with village council member Cathy Lance, are launching a fundraising campaign to replace the holiday wreaths that line the Village streets during the Holiday Season and Winterfest.

The campaign officially kicked off March 9, when The Sons of the American Legion Squadron 257 gave a $3,000 donation. The entire project will cost just over $9,000.

A new 4-foot Diamond Snowflake design will replace the current Wreaths, which were purchased in 1995.

The older wreath frames are falling apart and experiencing lighting failures. The new design will feature a fresh look as well as LED lighting to drastically save on electricity costs.

There are currently 36 wreaths that need replaced at a cost of $244 each, plus shipping.

This campaign is open to anyone who would like to donate. There will be an account open at First Knox National Bank in Loudonville, or donors may send a donation to the Chamber Office at 131 West Main Street, Loudonville, Ohio 44842.

“It will be great for the community to work together on this project and help beautify the streets for years to come” stated Chamber Vice-Chairman, Allen Heimberger.
