The twelfth in a series of commemorative ornaments of an Alden landmark is now available. This year’s ornament commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Alden State Bank. A rendering of the Bank’s current location on Broadway in the Village of Alden is etched into a lovely beveled piece of glass, final design and production is by Bill Dabb from an initial concept by Christopher Gust of Alden State Bank.
Brought to you by the Alden Chamber of Commerce, this ornament 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, St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church, the original Black Water Bath House in 2010, the Erie County Home in 2011, the Alden Presbyterian Church in 2012, Town Line Lutheran Church in 2013, St. John the Baptist Church in 2014, Veteran’s Memorial Wall in 2015, and now the Alden State Bank.
Ornaments cost just $5.00 and are available at the Chamber office, 13500 Broadway; Alden Advertiser, 13200 Broadway; Alden Pharmacy, 13203 Broadway, and Henry’s Candy & Gifts, 13237 Broadway during their regular business hours.
