Albany Christmas ornament unveiled

November 12, 2003

Albany -- The City of Albany's official 2003 Christmas Ornament was unveiled Wednesday morning.

The ornament depict's Albany's Radium Springs, one of South Georgia's most famous landmarks.

Mayor Tommy Coleman bought the first ornament when they went on sale. The money raised goes to Easter Seals, to help people with disabilities here in South Georgia.

This is the twelfth year that Easter Seals has offered the collectible ornaments. Easter Seals Director of Development Stan Davis said "We sell between 750 and 1000 of those every year. It's a wonderful fundraiser. We'll make between eight and ten thousand dollars, which helps with our services here."

The Christmas Ornaments are available at the Easter Seals Office on Palmyra Road and several businesses around Albany. They cost fourteen dollars.
