This annual celebration honors the memory of those who have passed away at the Hospice during the year, paying tribute to their friends and families. Ornaments with the names of loved ones are placed on the tree, with families taking the keepsake home as a memento after the ceremony and reading of the names. Our volunteers helped decorate, distributed programs and pamphlets, and helped take down the ornaments at the conclusion.

They were treated to hot cocoa and carrot cake at a local bakery nearby after their work was completed. Our clients are always glad to help and give back to our neighbors in the community.
