The Franklin Memorial Hospital Auxiliary once again has a Remembrance Tree at the Hospital entrance, which will be lit throughout the holiday season.
Bulbs can be purchased “in memory of” or “in honor of” one or more individuals for a nominal fee. A wreath currently on display in the hospital lobby shows the names of the dedications, as well as the donors who made the gift. Proceeds benefit the Franklin Memorial Hospital Auxiliary.
On December 1, the dedication and lighting ceremony of the Remembrance Tree took place along with caroling and music by Sammie Angel. “The ceremony was an opportunity to remember loved ones who have passed on and to honor those special people in our lives who are still with us,” said Auxiliary President Shannon Smith.
To order a bulb, send the name of the person a bulb is to be “in memory of” or “in honor of” to: Nancy Chase, 107 Rosewood Drive, Farmington, ME 04938. Enclose a check payable to the Franklin Memorial Hospital Auxiliary for the total bulbs purchased. Each bulb is $5.
Forms to order bulbs are available in the hospital’s gift shop, located near the main entrance. For additional information, call Shannon Smith at 778-4726.
