Andy and Kathy Leclaire split a milkshake at Yankee Candle Village. They took the trip to celebrate their 39th – and final – wedding anniversary. 

Andy and Kathy Leclaire knew exactly what they wanted to do for their 39th – and final – wedding anniversary in October. They hoped to visit Yankee Candle Village. Located in Deerfield, Massachusetts, about 30 miles south of their home in Brattleboro, Vermont, the trip may have been simple a few years ago, but would now require a team effort.
