Tree of Love ceremony in Woodruff on Dec. 3
December 03, 2019
For 31 years, Ascension at Home has joined with the community to welcome the holidays with an evening of warm memories, fellowship and sharing at the beautiful Tree of Love ceremony. Thirteen years ago, their partner hospice program in Rhinelander began a similar tradition.
These gatherings are a way to recognize the pain that exists in the hearts of many after a death, and to celebrate the memories that last. The trees will remain lit throughout the holidays, as a reminder that those who have lived have left a lasting impression. Everyone is invited to both of these very special events.
In Woodruff, the 31st annual Ascension at Home Tree of Love ceremony will be held at 7 p.m. tonight, Tuesday, Dec. 3. The tree will be dedicated at a special remembrance celebration outside the Dr. Kate Clinic at Woodruff on the Howard Young Medical Center campus. Following the ceremony, refreshments will be served and everyone is invited to join together for conversation and fellowship in the lobby.
Memorial donations are $10 for each light to be lit on the tree. Contact Mary Ellen Kaminski at 800-234-3542 for details.
In Rhinelander, the 13th annual Tree of Love ceremony will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 5, at ArtStart, 68 S. Stevens Street. Everyone is invited to this special remembrance celebration to recognize the pain of loss and begin the holiday season with hearts full of love and memories.
For a $10 donation a special memorial tag will be placed on the tree. For more information call Mary Ellen Kaminski at 800-643-4663.
No registration is required to attend either of these free tree lighting ceremonies, and everyone is encouraged to join in the fellowship.
