Unfortunately, Albany's 2020 Heritage Day celebration is cancelled due to COVID restrictions. We had hoped to still have Heritage Day in some capacity for our community and local businesses but it just didn't work out.

We look forward to Heritage Day 2021! #Albanystrong

Medallion Hunt: Clue #3

This serves as a reminder to hikers and finders.
Do your best not to be a pest to the trekkers and bikers.
Be mindful of this, as you look for the disc.
In the end and on the trail, it's what is all for the best.

Stop by Albany Chrysler Dodge Jeep today for the Car Show!

Keep an eye out before the parade for our volunteers selling tickets for the Chamber's "Half for Cash" raffle!

Medallion Hunt: Clue #2

This is really quite easy, so don't throw a fit.
Before you know it, you will know where I sit.
Look up and down the route, look over it with care.
Cars may go by, so be aware.
You know what you know, now decide where to go.

The Albany Enterprise

Congratulations to Irene Ohmann for being chosen as grand marshal for this year's Albany Heritage Day! Irene has owned and operated the Albany True Value Hardware Store on Railroad Ave. for 36 years. Be sure to wave at her in the parade Aug. 3!

Medallion Hunt: Clue #1

A new hunt for a great treasure has begun today.
Searching on public land is the only way to play.
It's time to get moving but before you go,
You should know where it is hiding is very low.
The medallion has found a nice place to rest,
Check out Albany and give it your best.
