FARMINGTON — The Franklin Memorial Hospital Auxiliary will host a dedication and lighting ceremony for its remembrance tree at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 6, in the hospital lobby. There will be caroling and refreshments.

Decorations can be purchased in memory of or in honor of one or more individuals for a nominal fee. Proceeds will benefit the FMH Auxiliary, according to a news release from the Franklin Community Health Network.

Gooley’s Christmas Tree Farm has donated an evergreen tree. The tree is decorated with red remembrance lights and will glow continuously throughout the month. “This ceremony is 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 Jean Rand, according to the release.

To order a decoration, send the name of the person it is to be in memory of or in honor of to: Vickie Robbins, PO Box 233, Dryden, ME 04225 or Dawn Girardin, P.O. Box 165, Weld, ME 04285. Enclose a check payable to the FMH Auxiliary for the total decorations purchased. Each decoration will cost $5.

Forms to order decorations are also available at the hospital’s information desk and in the hospital’s gift shop, located near the main entrance. For more information, call Rand at 645-4823.
