The 2017 Anderson Golf Classic was a success!

The rain held off, making it a beautiful day to host our 4th Annual Anderson Golf Classic at the Fredericksburg Country Club on June 16th, 2017. The day started off with registration and breakfast. After breakfast, tee off was right on time, with the tournament finishing up around 1 pm. Golfers enjoyed a delicious BBQ lunch during the awards and raffle ceremony.

Awards were given to the longest drive at several holes which were sponsored by some of our guests. There were a few fun competitions at this year’s classic, because who doesn’t like a little friendly competition? The winners lucked out with this year’s prizes! Prizes included a portable grill, wine gift baskets, golfing equipment, and a Large Big Green Egg with EGGcessories!  At the end of the ceremony, awards for the top three teams were presented followed by a gracious speech made by Mark Anderson.

All of the proceeds for this year’s Classic are being donated to  Micah Ecumenical Ministries. Micah is a Christ-centered community supporting people experiencing chronic homelessness and identifying pathways to sustainable housing.

The ministry at Micah seeks to provide access to assistance resources for the many obstacles that the chronically homeless face.   Advocates from Micah attended to bring awareness to Micah’s mission and their vision for the future with participants.

We are incredibly appreciative for all of the generous donations. Not only did our participants donate when joining the event, but they participated in our raffles, purchased event polo shirts, donated gifts for the award ceremony, and some even returned their prizes for proceeds to be awarded back to Micah.

Thank you again to all who participated and all who volunteered to make this year’s Classic our best yet!

We want to thank everyone who attended the Annual Anderson Christmas Party on Thursday, December 15th, 2016. Surrounded by all of the Anderson employees and their loved ones, we had a wonderful time at The Inn at the Old Silk Mill located in Downtown Fredericksburg.

We also would like to thank Karen Jonas and Tim Bray for the beautiful music. Jonas’ new album, Country Songs, is out now! The Sunken Well Tavern provided the delicious dinner buffet. The buffet included crab dip, pigs in a blanket, sliders, mac & cheese, BBQ chicken, filet mignon, salad, collard greens, and crab cakes! Even though everyone was full from all of the tasty food, they still had room for dessert… cake from Paul’s Bakery!

After everyone ate, Mark Anderson, the President of The Anderson Companies, thanked all of the employees for their hard work this year. Mark then called out the raffle winners, each winner chose their prize from the gift table.

The Senior Vice President, Nicole Cameli, spoke after Mark. She expressed how thankful she is to be a part of the Anderson Companies and thanked the employees for making 2016 a great year.

Just when everyone thought the Christmas Party could not get any better, it was time to play Left Center Right! The lucky winner was Todd, an Anderson Leonarkis Construction employee.

After Left Center Right, the Administrative Assistant, Jan LaVan, announced some more winners of the raffle. This time, the winners chose between three empty boxes numbered 1, 2, and 3. The first person called won a Roku TV, the second called won a flat screen 48 inch TV, and the third called won a Yeti Cooler!

After the last raffle winners were called, Mark thanked everyone for attending, and that was a wrap! Between the delicious food, presents, and good company, it was evident that everyone had a great time at the Christmas Party. Anderson Oil Company, Anderson Propane Service, and Anderson Leonarkis Construction appreciate all the hard work and dedication from our employees and it was a pleasure to return the favor with gratitude, fun games, and presents.

On behalf of The Anderson Companies, we want to wish you and your loved ones a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year! 2016 was a spectacular year and we look forward to an even better 2017!

Here at Anderson Propane Service, we are very animal friendly. If you stop by our office, there is a pretty good chance you might see a dog wandering around here, or even a pig! None of our employees miss work if they cannot find someone to help take care of their animals, they just bring them into work for the day! A couple of employees here recently took a trip to the Fredericksburg SPCA to donate some goodies for the animals that are waiting for their forever home.

Pictured below is our very own Philip Gouldman and Janet Hahn, and the Fredericksburg SPCA’s newest Volunteer Coordinator, Alison Carlin!

Alison gave Janet a tour of the facility. She got to meet all of the sweet, loving dogs and cats that are patiently waiting to find a home. Janet is a big animal lover, so naturally, she wished she could take all of them home with her!

On behalf of all of us here at Anderson Propane, we want to thank the Fredericksburg SPCA for allowing us to stop by. More importantly, we are grateful for everything they do to help all of the precious dogs and cats get the love they deserve and find their forever home. We hope to make a visit again very soon!


Anderson Propane’s Adoption Stories

A couple of the employees here at Anderson Propane have adopted their pets from the Fredericksburg SPCA. Here are their stories:


Bekah Constien and her husband, Cody, recently adopted a dog from the Fredericksburg SPCA. They both had wanted a dog for awhile. Instead of getting a puppy, they thought it would be best to give an older dog a home. They immediately went to the Fredericksburg SPCA. When they saw Sofie (at the time her name was Amaretto) they both fell in love! She was the sweetest dog they had ever met. After spending some time with her, they had no hesitation in choosing to adopt her.

Sofie had only been at the SPCA for a little less than a week, but she had been living in a shelter in North Carolina for over a month. Just one day before getting euthanized, the Fredericksburg SPCA rescued Sofie along with four other dogs from the same shelter in North Carolina. Bekah and Cody could not be happier with the new addition to their family. They hope to adopt many more shelter animals in the future and give them the love they so deserve!



Stephanie Pruett adopted her cat from the Fredericksburg SPCA. She went to a few different places and met some cats, but did not feel any of them were right for her. When she thought the search was over and began feeling disappointed, she remembered the Fredericksburg SPCA! When Stephanie got to the SPCA, she had a good feeling. She informed the staff that she was looking for a black cat. They told her they had just rescued two cats that were sick, but one was well enough to be adopted… and it was a black cat! Stephanie could not resist this precious kitty! She knew right away this was the one.

At the time, the cat’s name was Tootsie. Stephanie did not think that name was fitting. So, she renamed her Sophie! (No, Stephanie or Bekah did not plan to name their pets the same name. Just coincidence!) Sophie now has a loving family and a forever home where she plays and takes naps whenever she pleases!


Bekah and Stephanie both could not imagine life without their pets! They are part of the family now. Both Sofie and Sophie finally have the loving homes they deserve. If you are thinking about adding a new addition to your family, please consider adopting a dog or cat from the Fredericksburg SPCA.

If you have already given a shelter pet a forever home, please share your adoption story with us on our Anderson Propane Service, Inc. Facebook page!



Don’t forget the most important ingredient to any cookout: safety.  Watch the video above featuring Food Network personality Sunny Anderson for some safety advice, and review the tips below.

  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.  Whether it’s assembly, use, maintenance, cleaning, or storage, make your grill manufacturer’s instructions your go-to resource for safe grilling.
  • Position the grill in a safe location.  Keep your grill outdoors and at least five feet from the house on a level surface that is clear of outdoor furniture, overhead trees, or other potential fire hazards.
  • Check for leaks.  Use a soapy water solution to check connections for leaks.  Expanding bubbles indicate a leak.  Follow this procedure every time you replace a cylinder.
  • Follow proper lighting procedures.  Follow the manufacturer’s lighting instructions, and will all grill models, keep the lid open and don’t lean over the grill when lighting it.
  • Follow proper relighting procedures.  If your flame goes out, turn off the gas and refer to your owner’s manual.  At a minimum, with all grill models, keep the lid open and wait at least 15 minutes before relighting.
  • Be present.  Stay close and never leave your grill unattended.

Happy Grilling!

I am very satisfied with the entire Anderson team. Everyone at Anderson went out of their way to make my wife and I feel like one of the Anderson Family. When they were completed doing our Gas Conversion job, Sherry and I were very confident that we couldn’t have found anyone that could’ve done a better job. Thank you very much Anderson Propane!

I was impressed from the 1st time I spoke to someone. The lady on the phone was relaxed, helpful and patient, explaining the process and how things would go. The best part was the gentlemen who came out to look at our tank, equipment, lines and repairing as needed.

I had a great experience with Anderson! Landscapers accidentally severed the feed line into my house, and they advised me of the immediate actions I needed to take, things to be aware of and had a manager and field tech out for the repair almost immediately. Very impressed with the service!

After purchasing our new home we called to set up account and the next day they were over doing a safety inspection, installed wireless monitor and ensured we we informed of proper carbon monoxide alarm placement. Awesome service.
