Hospice Remember Me Tree & Candle Lighting Ceremony: A Way To Honor Loved Ones – HERINGTON
Hospice of Dickinson County is sponsoring its annual “Remember Me Tree,” to honor the memory of loved ones during the holiday season. It will be on display at the Home Health and Hospice of Dickinson County office and other Herington locations through the end of December.
Anyone may place an angel or cross on the tree to honor or remember a loved one. Donations are accepted for the ornaments and it is encouraged to put the name of the person honored on the ornament. For donations of $20 or more, porcelain keepsake ornaments are available. Donation boxes are located at several Herington businesses including Kay’s Pharmacy, Miss Lizzy’s, Cenex, and Home Health and Hospice of Dickinson County.
Proceeds from the “Remember Me Tree” benefit the local Hospice program. Carol Whitehair, Director of Hospice of Dickinson County, states, “Placing an ornament on the tree is a wonderful way to remember or honor a loved one during the holidays. These donations directly benefit our Hospice patients and programs.”
A Candle Lighting Memorial Service will be held Monday, December 11, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 114 N. 8th, in Herington beginning at 6:30 p.m. Everyone from our community is invited. There will be a short memorial reading followed by honoring those whose names appear on the Remember Me Tree.
