Tree of Life ceremony approaching

Thursday, November 9, 2000

The third annual Tree of Life Ceremony will be held Thursday, Nov. 16 at 2 p.m. at the Buena Vista County Home Care Hospice campus on West Milwaukee Ave.

In September, a new hospice tree was donated by the family of Evelyn Harris. Once again, strands of lights will be placed on the tree and everyone is encouraged to bring an ornament in memory of a loved one.

Following the brief ceremony, cider, coffee and treats will be served. Anyone who would like to remember a loved one is welcome to come.

People are asked to bring an ornament that can be secured tightly to the tree. Wind, rain and snow could damage any ornament you bring, so remember this in choosing an ornament. If you have any questions, please call 749-2741.
